We were lucky here in Charlotte, only days and days of wind. A sometimes sunless sky - unable to glimpse the passing full moon. Feeling the effects of the storm on my sensitive system as only I do. Reminding me of my place in this world and how vulnerable I am to its whims. Knowing that for me, the storm took with it some aspect that was ready for release. Not choosing which one, but grateful all the same. Much like the unconsulted leaves the winds pulled from the trees. I, too, am letting go for winter.
For countless others who lost everything tangible, it may even be harder to believe all the destruction and heartache left by Sandy. Stripped down to the core of yourself must be the greatest reminder of what is truly important in this world. I feel for all those suffering, and once again stand in awe of the power the Earth holds within her.
