Gratefulness to Overcome Overwhelm Post Sandy

Sandy's Path of Destruction Horror stories, boats in houses, boardwalks in front yards, no power means no heat too; it’s cold in NY now.  I’m booting up in nearby town of Rockville Centre that has the business district hopping with electric.  A sense of community, repair, boredom, hopelessness and overwhelm for some.  Homelessness, shelters and evacuations are no fun.  Uprooted and possessions gone- a lot of that on Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, downtown Manhattan, Staten Island & New Jersey.  So, if you’re simply bored with no power, no work happening and have your stuff and your peeps-well then- let’s have big gratefulness positive energy happening.  You’ve got you!! And that’s a lot.  Here’s a few things to do:

Light some candles and meditate- become one with a flame for a few minutes!

Visit someone by bicycle (save gasoline, which is a additional problem now)

Read a book(s)

Clean out some shelves

Have a post hurricane party!

Dance!

Still no power in my home; I’m at Panera’s RVC now.

We’re fortunate to have hot water, stove top and my neighbor’s generator hooked to the fridge a few hours a day.
