I am surfing the internet. BBC, NY times. What for? Irene. I really really hope the people of the US east coat will be safe. I do. I have on-line friends there and RL fiends that have their family there. My thoughts are with them.
At the same time I cannot help to be in total awe of the forces and the amazing pictures Irene gives us. Nature that is plotting it’s own trajectory, not taking into account at all what we humans have thought up. Nature that is stronger than what we often think. And when I see those pictures from space, the devastation caused I am feeling humbled by that which we do not control.
Still I am selfishly so glad it is not lashing here. I would be scared out of my pants instead of in awe I think. So please take care, be safe.
