Nothing is the same since Sandy. That’s not necessarily good or bad either. It’s different. There’s a lot of construction, everywhere. New businesses, new residences and new rules too.
My hyper-local beachfront has been a real hub of activity. It seems like it’s the staging ground for the ongoing, never ending, beach replenishment. My most familiar beaches are more than triple the size they were last year.
It all seems a bit futile to me. How we still think/believe we can negotiate with mother-nature.
I’ll be traveling for a while now and looking for a ‘story’ to bring home from my adventure. My application was approved and I’ll be returning to the NJ Storyteller’s Festival at Grounds for Sculpture in September!
