A quick update after Hurricane Irma:
My family and friends all came through the rough winds and the damage that Irma left in her wake.
Thank you all for your prayers. I am confident that we escaped the worst of the storm's wrath because of them.
Some subsequent inconveniences are more difficult to live with, but remain minor in the big scheme of things. Electricity and every wonderful perk that comes with it are sorely missed - hot water and air conditioning are at the top of that list.
Even as I write that, and in lieu of the fact that so many have lost home and in some cases life, these things are trivial.
It does regretfully leave me without internet access though. I hope to resume my posts and "It's a String Thing" by the middle of next week, provided our power is restored when promised.
In the meantime, please keep emailing your tiles for IAST #211 - The Ampersand.
I managed to tangle three: one before the hurricane, one the day of, and one the day after. Now they are a snap shot of a weekend I will long remember.
It will be wonderful to see what all of our tiles look like together.
Again, thank you for your prayers.
