My birthday comes each year like clockwork. And it’s impossible to forget because stores stock up on candy for trick-or-treaters and costumes and all kinds of ghoulish decorations. I’ve become very adept at fooling myself that everybody is really celebrating me, after all, it does seem only natural and super fabulous that I was born on Halloween.
Clearly, Sandy was intent on showing me a thing or two because she wreaked complete and utter havoc. Homes and communities and Roller Coasters have been destroyed. A friend of mine who didn’t even live in an evacuation zone almost perished when water rushed into her apartment threatening to drown her. She lost all her worldly possessions. Luckily, she got away with her life. And as I write this in the dark, I am waiting for Con Ed to restore electricity to my block after power was shut down due to sparking wires. Sandy definitely won out this time. My celebration was seriously curtailed. And yet I remain grateful for another birthday and another breath. Things could have been so much worse.
Peace & Fashion!
