Remembrances

partial eclipse
A year ago today Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, and some people are still without homes. My best friend and her mother went without power and water for five days--frightening, because her mother is a woman of years--while all of those who love them plotted ways to get help to them and she did a lot of muscle-aching work herself once some of the stores uptown opened. Goddess bless her trainer, who hauled fat jugs of water upstairs to them. And they were among the lucky ones. Now our friends in Great Britain are being battered by the-storm-that-isn't-a-hurricane-but-is-nasty-all-the-same, and I send good wishes and hopes their way.

Today is also the anniversary of the 1929 Stock Market Crash which sparked the Great Depression, something that seemed a little too close to home not that long ago--and may loom in our rear view mirrors all too soon, when it comes up again in the New Year.

And I continue to dig away at my end of the Companion Book, as does Tim, and Julie, finishing the final bits. I will say this--that Whisper Man generates a lot of paper work!

We have a friend who's in a wheelchair (has been all her life) and lives in a high rise in Manhattan. She lost power and water, and couldn't leave her building (elevators didn't work!). If she didn't have friends to bring her food and water, I don't know what she would've done.

I hope the folks in GB stay safe!
