Hunkering Down in Brooklyn
I am seeing lots of tweets from other bloggers in the city and it makes me think of everyone out there and I hope that everyone is safe during the storm.
New York emergencies are such memorable events. Somehow they bring people together. I've been feeling that this weekend as everyone has been preparing, buying groceries, and checking on friends and neighbors. In fact, as this Sunday closes, my heart is so full. The togetherness and the human connection I have been witnessing between people today is just so beautiful.
For example, two women I know rode on bikes to check on some people across town. One is on a residency rotation and also has a 1 year old and I literally can't believe how she found the time to do this. But she did. They went to check on some people in our community to see if they had any needs before the storm.
Another woman asked me if we had enough food on hand in case there was an outage and literally said she'd drop some off at my house if needed. (We will be fine, but can you believe the generosity?)
And I've seen dozens of people not only thinking of their own families, but reaching out to others to offer some help, if needed.
Truly, it's been heart warming to witness.
Sending love to all. And lots of gratitude for some really amazing people in this world.
P.S. Brooklynites: Danny and I are on high grounds in Park Slope. If anyone gets flooded or needs help, tweet us or email us - we'd love to help if we can.
