Beats Stumbling Around in Silence



2017-06-14 18.23.05-4

My heart goes out to my Gulf Coast neighbors. I want to say that the storm will pass and there are rainbows ahead but right now that seems trite and doesn’t bring solace. The impact of these devastating disasters lasts for years. In the current climate of divisiveness and anger, it gives me hope to see folks coming together and showing the best of humanity under such horrible circumstances.

For anyone who wants to help, here is a link to the Hurricane Harvey Facebook page with options for donation.

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. Reminding me of Katrina, with people not evacuating. Can’t believe there weren’t evac orders issued. I wonder when the “boy who cried wolf” phenomenon will end and folks will begin to heed these storm warnings.

  2. I hear you. I went through Ivan and then Katrina. I ALWAYS leave. I have elderly family members that need assistance and stuff is just stuff. Heartbreaking though to see so many people suffering. I think when this is over the emergency management teams needs to figure out how to evacuate 2 million people over the course of a few days as this is not the last time this area will be hit with devastating storms.

  4. Nope. Even with past lessons though, people still will not leave. It’s sad, the devastation and heartbreak, and loss of life. But they still won’t leave. I don’t get it. You’re right, things are just things. Nothing is worth ones life.

    Lovely double rainbow.

    Painful human disaster.
