Extra Post SATURDAY - "SHINE A LIGHT"


Central Park
NYC-USA
8.26.2011

"Forget the hurricane and join us tonight at the Central Park Conservancy Film Festival! We'll be showing "Shine A Light",
the story of an epic Rolling Stones concert
directed by Martin Scorsese." 
  Born In a Hurricane
The crowd was mighty subdued and very young, but the film is as good as ever it was, and the crickets were wonderful both on the walk in and the walk back out to Fifth Avenue. Stopped to snap this fashion emporium where it seems evident Vera Wang has just    lost her head
Shine That Light On Me
 Jumpin Jack Flash
 
 All is well with me. I'm prepared, not scared, and have a plan B:

Magic

sounds like you enjoyed the concert. i needed some magic this morning. my internet went out last night while i was streaming a netflix movie on the tv. turns out my router went bad so had to go out and pick up a new one this morning. just hooked it up and seems all is well again. keeping up with the storm news. the waiting is probably the hardest thing. not due to hit NY until tomorrow. i'll enjoy listening to the videos you posted sometime later. stay safe.

If it isn't one thing, it's another. The storm here is due to manifest starting at 6PM. All Metro transit was discontinued (bus and rail) at noon. It's still and weird (the shift in air pressure works at me). Many neighbors evacuated. The worst, plus tornado watch, will be Sunday morning, and we are expecting 7-12 inches of rain between 6PM to the end of Sunday. Sea surges might flood many areas and knock out electricity If the grid crashes, and I lose computer, and or stored information, I have portable back up storage device the size of a small paperback, so can reload the computer with vitals later, and candles and flashlights with a portable radio will do me fine, plus hand work, art and sleep. If it's a tempest in a teapot, that's fine too. I am a bit weary of the bruha of it, nonstop on the news and repititious.

Thank you for your kindness and concern. it feels comforting to find comments by such wonderful long distance friends. It has begun, the worst will be 7-11 AM tomorrow. I think I will sleep despite tornado alert, I'm weary, warm and comfortable. Enjoy Sundays post. I think of you too, and Jude, and many friends along the coast.

Just woke with a start. What an expression! 2AM and I turn the ccomputer on...what was I looking for? Your message? I never saw "night Shift, but it was a funny scene, have you seen Whoppie Goldberg's 'Jumpin Jack Flash' her star turn in what is basically a detective story, with some star turns by noteables-http://youtu.be/ToCOlIjgO9U-It's also funny ut this bit is Aretha
