The nice thing about hurricanes is that they force you to stay indoors. They also put sounds into perspective and reverse the natural sonic state of things. Loud winds and miserable trees fade in and out throughout the day. Every now and then, the beast settles down and the day feels normal for a few seconds.
It’s a good exercise in appreciating the power of nature, our human fragility and the beautiful silence that fills the gaps in our hectic lives.
Sandy is all about acoustic guitars and pianos and green tea and enjoying the fact that there’s no leaving now.
