So far four people are reported dead as a result of Ike. Does it trivialize their deaths to say, whew, and feel grateful? Probably. And yet…whew. I don’t know why I was so anxious, except that it’s my general state these days. (Does anyone else even remember that we’re in the midst of a war? Or, you know, maybe two wars? I shouldn’t say that, because obviously the relatives of soldiers remember–but does anyone else???) At any rate, my feelings of doom appear to have come to naught and I am most grateful. It fills me with the desire to remember how my life is good. So, um, probably we’ll go to Dunkin’ Donuts for breakfast tomorrow. Yep, that’s how we celebrate a life that is good. Sugar!
