Stormy Times

Stormy Times 

Manor Park (Larchmont, New York)—April 30, 2020. April ended with stormy weather. The highest monthly temperature in New York City was just 68°F (20.0°C). That was the coldest April monthly temperature since 1940.

The stormy weather was perhaps a fitting symbol for the COVID-19 “storm” that has been raging and taking a terrible toll. But amidst all that darkness, there have been displays of beauty, too. That beauty was on display to a message one small business owner left for her customers:

Please remember to take all your precautions in staying healthy and safe. Do take this time to do something you enjoy whether it be doing your crossword puzzles, or painting, dancing or singing out loud, watching a movie or reading a book, sewing or knitting maybe crocheting… Stay connected and reach out to those who are alone and in need for someone to talk to.

As for the moms and dad who are taking care of your children and working from home, enjoy this time you hae with them, these are special gifted times to you…

[T]here is always tomorrow, we’ve been all through tough times before with prayers, hope and faith we will make it through together.

I can’t wait until we see each other again to celebrate life together and share our stories.

Love Gisèle & Staff


But there was something more. She added, “Should you need someone to talk to I am only a phone call away, I will be checking in… I am always here for you.” Along with that was her phone number.

We are doing well, hiking, writing, home projects, lawn work. Using it as an opportunity to do some things that probably wouldn't get done otherwise.

The stormy sea is awe-inspiring, and could be truly symbolic of the present situation, and touching how crises open people's hearts and promote what is truly essential.
Have a great week, and stay well, Don!

On a rather featureless bit of the coast, rough weather is good for photography. With your rocks it is even better. Thanks for passing on that kind, thoughtful shop-keeper's message.
By contrast the UK had the sunniest April on record as can be seen from this report from our national forecasting agency - www.metoffice.gov.uk/about-us/press-office/news/weather-and-climate/2020/2020-april-stats

I love it when the sea shows its power like this, and I imagine that the spume floated in the air at times. Such a lovely message too during these times of hardship, illness, death and loneliness. This is one more example of kindness.
