Hurricane Irene

Front Yard Clean-Up

Hurricane Irene hit last week leaving her mark just about everywhere in New England including our wooded State of Connecticut.  Loss of power and flooding brought neighbors and friends closer together. And as of this writing, there are still those soldiering through without many familiar creature comforts we all take for granted.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.
For myself, one of the fortunate ones, I experienced no flooding and my power was out for only 24 hours.  This slow-motion passage of time created “space” to contemplate.
So, I slid my two pets, Kismet, my Maine Coon, and Smudgy, my Shih Tzu, over on the window seat (see pix on my home page), lit a candle or two, and inwardly began a review and renewal of my life's current path, Animal Chaplaincy.
The candle holders were the type that covered the flames so there would be no singed, fluffy tails nor toasted, pushed-in noses.
NEWSFLASH!   Prior to the storm hitting, the State of CT gave instructions on how to prepare animal companions and where to take them if you had to evacuate your home.       “Way To Go CT!!!”
This is a sure example of how even disasters such as Katrina do have embedded within them "some" positive lessons for change.  (Part of my life's review and renewal.)
Has Hurricane Irene shifted anyone else's perceptions at all?
Love & Light, Barbra

Hi Barbra I lost power from Saturday night until Wednesday morning. I was well taken care of because I had water and a gas stove. I did however find myself in a place unfamiliar by Monday night when I returned home to a dark world. My babies all rescues, Sammy, Mokey, Jack and Sissy Pig Tails all did fine. I on the other hand felt a bit with out a bit inconvenienced until I started hearing and seeing all the goodness I truly had and was surrounded in. From then on spirit self (without ego) kicked in and all is well.....Blessed and knowing it even more then before Irene,
