and the power is back on at last in my little cottage
how different it looks from yesterday

on day 6 without power.

on day 5 with no power
when i log onto their site
to check on the status
how many people
are choosing to click on
the ‘make payment’ option.
“information can bring you choices and choices bring power –
educate yourself about your options and choices. never remain in the dark of ignorance.”
even the fairy village at my cottage took at hit
and as we wait for our power restoration
there are always a few shiny glimmers of hope on the horizon.
“we’ve got to rebuild human hearts –
and persuade people that hope isn’t just possible, but essential. “
660,000+ with power out right now in michigan
i am 1.
wonder where i might be on the list?
the power went out
just before our dinner party
so we had it anyway
candlelight, a warm fire, and great friends made it even better.
