Power to the people?

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, sometimes one couldn’t get from here to there without taking the long way around.


Speaking of power, during my week without it, I confess it was some small comfort in knowing that I’m not alone. The communal support, brotherly love and overall camaraderie that enveloped our community in the wake of the hurricane has been overwhelming in it’s generosity of spirit and ushers in the holidays right on time. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and many of us have a lot to be thankful for this year. As we reach out to each other, lending a helping hand, my smile remains firmly in place, knowing that in times of need, I’ll get by with a little help from my friends. That feeling is electric, whether the power is on, or not.
