Oh good golly - the aftermath is far worse than even I, the ever and eternally optimistic, had imagined.
The good news is that every one I know (and the ones I just admire, such as Editor B) are safe. My heart goes out to the folks who stayed in the Superdome and now are being bused to the Astrodome. To be alive yet without options and in a place dedicated to fun and frivolity, headed for another as a refugee must be an awful sensation. It's all so much better than it might have been, yet so dreadful.
Words Written: more than expected
Lessons Graded: twelve
books on floor: nineteen
Gratitude that books are all that I have on my floor: priceless
(thank-you, blessed saints above)
