chronicle of my journey through my matriarch years - love , work, dreams, frustrations, poems, paradoxes

Bob and I have had a good, quiet day - lots of grading. It's a little eerie waiting for Hurricaine Gustav, three years after the devastation of Hurricaine Katrina. New Orleans is being evacuated. This afternoon elderly and disabled people were sent north on a train - I'm not sure to where - but at least there is some kind of plan. I feel unsettled, partly because of the storm. Life as we know it is so fragile, can be blown away at any moment by forces external or internal.
