I live in Rockland County, NY, and was without power for 6 days following Hurricane Sandy. I feel fortunate to have suffered such little inconvenience, and am touched to see friends, family and community coping with such hardship. At night, when it would be pitch black outside, we could see little candles and flashlights through people’s windows, and know that others were coping in the same way as we. There was a sense of silence outside that permeated everything. It was like being in another time altogether. I hope everyone who can will make a contribution to relief efforts for victims of Sandy, and will find a moment to be grateful for all we have.
Below is my song “Little Flame”. It seems to speak to recent events.
