a small word of thanks.

i've been feeling really grateful for the past few days after a fair amount of anxiety and worry early on in the week.  as you've all heard and read about, hurricane/superstorm/tropicalstorm sandy connected with the east coast on monday and tuesday.  that sandy rolled right through my hometown and my family got away with just some flickering and damaged siding on the house.  thanks to everyone who prayed for everyone/anyone on the east coast and continues to do so - especially as a possible nor'easter threat next week develops.  prayers make a difference! (and so do donations!  here or here.)

Although the wind
blows terribly here,
the moonlight also leaks
between the roof planks
of this ruined house.
