I spent my weekend battening down the hatches; raking up the last of the leaves, moving lawn furniture to its winter home, cutting back perennials, and generally saying goodbye to all things warm and green.
There is a storm coming, did you hear?
And, in the midst of doing battle with all the recycling that has piled up as we have been off Doing Other Things, I wondered about the storm brewing out in the Atlantic, and how small my own personal storms are in comparison. Perspective. It's a funny thing. As my mother would say, "This too shall pass." Because it will, you know?
Besides, I have an amazing trip to look forward to! Italy! in 4 days! (If JFK is not still underwater - yikes!)
