I live in northern New Jersey which, like the entire northeast, was directly in the path of Hurricane Sandy. But we were more directly in the path than most, and I live one block from the waterfront, so our town was hit particularly hard. No power for four days (Monday night through Friday night).
What’s a safe, comforting reading choice in this time of anxiety and destruction? Stephen King, of course! Here is my review of his collection, Night Shift,which I reread last week with more wisdom and appreciation than I first approached it with ten years ago.
And before I sign off, yes, our town was hit hard, but a lot of places down the Jersey shore had it worse. Our home was without power, but others have no homes to return to at all. Donate something– time, money, canned goods or clothes– to help those who have nothing left.
