art every day month : day two : thank you

Today for AEDM is a thank you to everyone who is helping to keep us sustained. No power yet, but a good samaritan pulled a string or two and managed to get the rare hotel room for us last night. So grateful for those who are keeping us sane, warm and well lit. This includes all of you, too, as well as the glass of wine I'm about to have. Sorry the text and photo are inverted in this post, but it seems to fit perfectly with the general upending of our lives right now!

I hope it gets sorted out really soon. Yes-art will keep you sane!

Glad you've got a hotel room for the night. Showers are highly underrated things!

And it's awesome that you are doing art. Awe-inspiring!

I just made a donation to a highly effective relief agency in the hopes of doing something concrete to send both relief and hope to the affected areas. Hang in there!

Keep up the strong spirit. It will be over soon. Glad to hear you are all safe. My sister lives in New Jersey and their power was restored the other day but she spends most of her time at the hospital, staffing. Some parts of the hospital are closed because they are still on generator power! I am afraid that she will be driving at night and run out of gas. Praying for everyone's safety and well being. The news we hear are heartbreaking. Be strong!!! Tsup!

Glad to see you're well. There are still folks without power up here too, the Red Cross is in town to provide hot meals, hygiene kits, and flood kits, bless them. It's weird here though, you don't have to drive far to find people who never lost power. We went out to dinner Tuesday night, not knowing how long we'd be without (we also lose the well pump and the septic system when the power is out), and it was like two different storms hit. I couldn't find ice anywhere down here (in the stores that were actually open), but my husband found some near his office, no problem, because...nobody needed it, 20 miles north.

Glad you're well... Wish I could cook you a warm meal or pour you a cold beer....

So glad you were able to find a little civilization and comfort! Hopefully the power (isn't that interesting, power - it really is!) will be on soon soon soon.

These are the times when you can see the kindness that humanity is really capable of. So glad you're managing to play along. Take good care xx

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh good, you are warm and sheltered! And with vino! :) I still can't get in touch with my sister in NJ who is contending with two restless toddlers, but at least I know they are safe.

Take care! xoxo

Hope your power is back soon, Aimee.
Sending you positive thoughts.

Lynn Cohen said...

I was sure you were sending message to the mayor and President Obama. I am sure the RED CROSS must be helping you too. And FEMA.
Glad we have all this help from the top!!! HOpe things get back to normal for you before too terribly long. I bet your art will be a great outlet for you in the meantime. Best wishes from me.

HPPF!
