shelter from the storm

With just a bit of a breeze and slight rainfall, we were spared the wrath of Ike. Fortunately we became a lighthouse for the less fortunate who suffered loss of homes, trees, and power as they fled here to our home of safety for friendship, laughter, great food and even some live guitar music! The fullmoon marinated the past few nights as folks gathered under the stars and cool weather to seek shelter from the storm. Henry strummed his guitar wailing and yodeling passionately his best rendition of Hank Williams and George Jones. Kirei and Riun cuddled in the chair together as Matt and I glowed in the soft light of the living room where we all felt a sense of kindness, peace and harmony. Jason and Csssie passed thru town for hugs and their precious kids Cadence and Greenley gathered shells, lizards and rocks for tiny little pockets.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure. Helen Keller
