what she said…

Ditto, Allison.
*************************
With the media focused on Katrina’s effects on New Orleans (rightfully so), there hasn’t been much reportage about the status of southern Alabama. It doesn’t seem too bad, thank heavens. And I’m not thanking the heavens just because I’m praying for the folks there in general. My paternal aunt and several of my cousins live in southern Alabama, just outside of Gulf Shores, and I have no idea how they are faring. Ever since my father became estranged from the family due to his own severe mental and emotional problems, my family lost touch with his side of the family.

I doubt they’re reading this, but still: take care, Aunt J. and cousins. I’m thinking about y’all and holding you in my heart.
