These pictures tell me the story in a way I had not gotten it from the broadcast media. Powerful. Huge swaths of destruction, tiny disabled devices, a presidential hug that speaks.

You have amassed some incredible photographs. Quite a telling document. That last one, the swan, floating over what was a street, striking, foreboding. How vulnerable we all are, all of us beings. My thanks to you. ~ Donna

Good morning Mike & Donna,

yes, these photographs are supernatural in some ways — other worldly and all of our world. One we are still, centuries and centuries deep, still learning about and from.

Has me think of two lines from Stevens:
"From this the poem springs: that we live in a place
That is not our own and, much more, not ourselves."

This won't heat up homes busted and swamped, but it will Occupy.

all's well, Bob
