I was supposed to see Aimee Mann tonight. I've wanted to see her for years and was so excited to finally have tickets. Needless to say, the show was rescheduled and my thwarted attempt to see her is small beans to what's happened in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
It sounds like New York is a mess. Lots of people—friends, family and strangers—are making do, getting by, offering help, and taking up offers from others for help. So who I am to say peep? I'm stuck in the Caribbean!
I do feel bad that so many people are without electricity and cleaning up atrocious messes. But if my flight was going to be cancelled and I was going to get stuck someplace, Grenada is a pretty sublime place to be.
This island is a paradise of fruit, spices and... chocolate!
Amazing chocolate, at that.
The people couldn't be friendlier, the vibe of Grenada is peaceful, happy and mellow, and it's just... spectacular.
I've hiked through the rainforest...
... swam in the sea...
... and am eating it all up.
Until I'm back in New York this weekend, I'm hoping everyone stays safe and well.
Thankfully, I have good neighbor-friends who are seeing that Milo is safe and well.
