Resilience & Perspective: After Sandy
These photos were taken the morning after the storm in my neighborhood, but from all reports, things were even worse in other parts of town. School was cancelled all of last week. Halloween Trick-or-Treating "postponed".
We're the lucky ones. We didn't have any flooding. That is what we feared the most and when I throw another log on our fire, I remind myself I still have a fireplace, unlike our neighbors in Staten Island and New Jersey.
Thanks to the kindness of friends who either have power or built in generators (on my Christmas list now), we have warm beds to sleep in, places to do our laundry and invitations for hot meals. Our boys have been amazingly resilient, entertaining themselves and enjoying our many dinners out. But, it is a bit tiring and emotional.
So, I know you'll understand that I won't be posting again until we have electricity.
There are lot of people in desperate need. And, we know....we're the lucky ones.
