Yesterday I ventured further into the hardest hit areas of NJ to check on a friend from the VFW and to see if my car mechanic's shop was still there. They're both bruised but OK.
On the trip down and back I saw so much debris and had to be re-routed several times. It was hard to see and harder to look away.
I found myself so sad and a bit angry with nature.
And so I need to remind myself - and share with you - the beauty of nature.
Apologies if there are too many shots, they all seem to depend on each other.
How little we have, I thought, between us and the waiting cold, the mystery, death--a strip of beach, a hill, a few walls of wood or stone, a little fire--and tomorrow's sun, rising and warming us, tomorrow's hope of peace and better weather . . .
