|Sunset from the house where I’m staying.|
I’m on Fire Island, and there is a good chance we’ll be evacuated because of Hurricane Earl. Otherwise I’ll likely be staying on through the holiday and flying back Monday. It’s so interesting to me how I can go somewhere knowing no one, and within a day or two I’ve tapped into a social network. I am not normally the sort of person who’s able to do that, though I won’t question it too much. Really, I’m just grateful to fall asleep with the sound of the ocean close at hand. And no matter if we’re evacuated or not, I’ve had a remarkable time here so far, including drag shows and cover bands and house parties and dancing and sunbathing and swimming in the ocean. I’ll find out tomorrow what’s to come, but tonight I’ll sleep soundly on what’s been given by grace thus far.
