Goodbye Irene, Goodbye Irene....

A word about fear. As Hurricane Irene approaches the east coast and people along the shoreline brace themselves for what is to come I can't help but offer some words of advice. I think that being cautious and aware in times like these (with the many earth changes occurring) can be helpful, but being fearful is of no use. Everywhere you turn these days the media is waiting to inject your bloodstream with a giant dose of good old-fashioned fear! Quick - Water is selling out at your local store and so are all of the canned foods, especially your favorite chicken noodle soup, you have to run and make sure you fight for the last bottle of Dasani?! All day long pictures of past hurricanes flash across both the television screen and the computer monitor as if they were past lovers swept away suddenly with the years; Ike and Gloria, oh and who could forget Floyd! But seriously, in a time when the Kardashian wedding gets more press than the widespread famine in the Sudan, I just seriously have trouble weeding out what to listen to and what to take seriously. So fellow east coasters here is my advice for prepping for hurricane Irene. First, Stay Grounded. Second, Trust your Intuition. Third, Make sure you've got some good grub in the house and perhaps maybe pick up some extra liquids just to err on the side of caution. And above all else let's focus on acknowledging this powerful storm and ask mother earth to help move this hurricane back out to the waters and be grateful to her for keeping us all safe and sound* and while we are at it let's send some loving to the Sudan. Thank you.
