Sandy, the hurricane, ripped up my beloved Jersey Shore. A friend of my son's boss said her beach house was gone. Totally disappeared into the sea.
Not even a wooden board left as a memento!
As we come to that infamous date 12/21/12 I think we are all noticing some tumult and chaos in our lives and relationships, and certainly the news has been a bit horrific, and worth not paying as much attention to as we are tempted to do.
I am considering all this in my journal, exploring it, separating myself a bit from the chaos, and trying to let the storm blow over.
