...as in Move Libby Into College Day. Two of Libby' siblings- her biggest sister Kate and her big brother Jamie, who fortunately has remained a big brother at least in relation to Libby - are coming to help. The fact that a hurricane named Irene is bearing down on the state adds an extra soupcon of I'm not quite sure what.
Students at colleges closer to the shore line are being told to evacuate once they've moved their stuff in, but Storrs, CT, just happens to be one of the most geographically safe places in the northern hemisphere. And we already had an earthquake last week.
But today...whatever the weekend and Irene brings...is beautiful. The sun's rising in long golden spears of light, the mist is rising off the ponds. The birds are calling, the roses are blooming, the world is lush and ripe and beckoning. I'm feeling rested and strong - all that good eating and those other healthy practices are paying off in terms of energy and awareness.
And I am about to get my life back in a way I haven't had it in more than three decades. No wonder a hurricane is roaring up the East Coast in a way one hasn't in over fifty years.
