aftermath and relief

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

First, I would like to sincerely thank all of you who reached out to me this week to see how I was doing during Hurricane Sandy.  I thought my week was tough after Sandy swept down on Manhattan earlier this week — evacuating my apartment in the desolate Lower Manhattan after losing power, water, and service.  In hindsight though, my situation really wasn’t that bad, especially since we retreated uptown to Zach’s apartment after the storm had passed and have been able to resume most of our daily activities.

These events in New York and across the East Coast have left many suffering much worse — flooding, lost family members, and homes .  And many are still left in the dark or stranded with nowhere to go.  I made a donation yesterday morning to the Red Cross (here; you can also do so by texting REDCROSS to 90999), and hope that this can serve as a reminder to those of you who have been meaning to help in some capacity.

    your images are soo deep, it really brings back the week of the storm. here in CA the only thing we are afraid of are earthquakes but to see how that type of natural disaster in NY brought it down is truly unbearable to see. I hope you are still safe and i soon await your fashion and food updates.
