‘Better Days?’

Long Beach Island, New Jersey

I’m suddenly reminded of a news clip I saw from Long Beach Island, some years ago. The the storm still raging, the mayor of Harvey Cedars stood amid the uprooted, overturned, cast-adrift beachfront homes and pledged, “Better days are coming soon!”

Well, he could hardly have been wrong, could he have?

But he was right about one thing at least: that particular storm would soon be over, and the mess it made would be cleaned up.

Should I go back to bed, or have some cereal?

  1. I was just wondering about you as I came on line. When we first get up, it is sometimes difficult to know if we feel better or not. I haven’t slept since 2AM, and I still don’t know how I feel at 7:15, so I am going to try for church this morning. I will need to start getting ready within the hour. Without food. I always feel worse for a while after eating. If food makes you feel better.. then why not try some food.

  2. You need some nutrition, but you also need rest. Eat what you can, put the rest in the fridge, and go back to bed.
