The Weather forecast for the NorthEast is not good. Our CT govenor said the storm was following its predicted “script” and that script will “end in disaster”. Every forecast I have heard ,while well-meaning i.e. (to have people prepare well and stay safe), has been also very scary. We cannot keep clear-headed when frightened, so my first reminder to myself is “calma”, stay calm, and prepare well to stay safe.
I have called family and friends, offered a haven to those I love who are by the shore and the rest is about keeping ourselves safe from harm as best as we can. Some companies do not “close”, so it is our personal repsonsibility to make wise decisions as to whether our services are so needed at work that they can be considered urgent.

Hold on steadily , and let it rock. And when the rocking is over, the picture will have reassembled itself into something much nearer to your heart’s desire.”
Even after the most devastating storm (personal or external), the sun comes out again and we are once again surrounded by beauty–even if that means the relief of knowing we survived and found inside of us the strength to weather whatever life hands us.
I wish all of my East Coast readers clear-headed calm, safety, and strength. Be well, stay safe, and look towards the rainbow at this storm’s end. God Bless.
