August 18- January 6, 2013
Hurricane Sandy was a test of our resolve. I am lucky. I have heat, water, electricity and a HOME. Many do not.
Reaching out to friends and relatives, the first utterance, "Are you are OK?"
On Sunday, I was looking for a restorative experience. For a lot of New Yorkers, this meant a working outlet and a warm cup of coffee. I took a walk through Central Park and wandered into the Met. The Museum was not as crowded as a "regular" Sunday, but it wasn't empty either. The most distinguishing characteristic of the crowd was the footwear. Over 50% of the visitors had on running shoes. I guess they figured that walking 26 miles around the museum would have to substitute for running 26 miles around New York City.
