disaster, help, give, Hurricane Sandy, HurricaneA former colleague of mine send this email to me last night:

Dave:

“I wanted to pass this story along about the Red Cross. I will donate to them after seeing them in action. They have been blanketing my neighborhood since the storm. We have a truck that passes by each evening. The two workers are from Mississippi and New Orleans. Now that is dedication driving to the east coast to feed somewhat affluent people sandwiches, juice boxes and occasional specials. They knew of my son’s allergies and had a meal for him as I got out of my car. I don’t need the hand out, but my dinner plan was to reheat leftover pizza on the stove. We accepted the food and they were happy and we were happy. My parents accepted fresh pears.  Food was nourishing.  It was good. Message is anyone can help anyone at any time. We should all be ready to help and accept help when we need it. We should all think about donations to the Red Cross.  They help people in distress when people need it most.”

Rob, thanks for the inspiration. I’m giving to Red Cross today.

And shiver.  I back the car out of the driveway and get on the road.  My fingers scroll the dials to find Bruce.  Stop on “Radio Nowhere.”  I dial it up.  Way up.  And set it to run a continuous loop.

I just want to hear some rhythm.

My car is running on mid-grade and running on Bruce - – who is now coursing through the car. And coursing through me.  

The Sun, a mere 100 million miles away, finds her way through my windshield to warm my skin.  (I feel more lift.  She’s pulling me. Pulling me up.  I’m thawing out.  And my bones are telling me…It’s a good day.  I’m feeling good.) [Read more...]
