    There was crazy beach erosion but we were spared of the horror that happened in other areas. I am on Eastern Long Island and which is less intense as all the force concentrated to the west where the land squeezed the water causing the deadly surges. It's truly a miracle and I'm counting my blessings!

    You got me worried for a moment but I just saw Virgil's VM here. That's a sigh of relief!

    Qim, thanks for thinking of me. Thankfully it didn't affect my area. Strong winds but almost no rain. But its really bad for the rest of NY. Lights out in half of the city. Never saw anything like it.

    Thanks for thinking of me and asking! We're fine! Thoughts and prayers go out to NYC, Long Island, New Jersey, CT, and RI.

    I posted some news on the thread, CBS has a lot of good videos. I haven't seen much on Staten island, but I would also assume it's power. Well, I have to go to bed. Talk to you soon.

    We got nothing. The winds were blowing, but very high up in the atmosphere. I think Bienvenue in Penn. got it harder than we did. NJ is devastated. My family is fine, but they have no power and it is anticipated they wouldn't have power for several more days. The NJ shore is demolished. The board walk at Atlantic City it gone, just the cement barrings are left. I was a bit emotional looking through the pictures. I really feel for the flood victims- its a horrible loss. The flooding in NYC is/was catastrophic. I hope Virgil and Puss are well. They probably aren't on-line because they may be without power. Thanks for listening to me dump. I'm not even a victim.

    We live in the mountains on the Canadian border. I am a little bit over an hour south west of Montreal. No water, but we are getting pretty high winds. School is closed tomorrow in anticipation of all the power outages. Thanks for thinking of me. I saw the thread that Calidore posted.

    I meant to say so before now, but I love your avatar. I wanted to name my youngest Cosette, but my wife had a family name picked out.

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout

by qimissung on 12-15-2012 at 01:13 AM
I live in the United States of America, and we had another school shooting today. With horror I listened to the news reports that a gunman had gone into an elementary school and killed 27 people, 20 of them “children between the ages of 5 and 10.” And I listened tiredly and wearily to the usual rhetoric of the newscast without end as they recounted the “worst school shooting in an elementary school.”
I guess they are doing the best they can, but you simply can’t put a qualifier or adjective

In Memoriam

by qimissung on 04-03-2012 at 11:05 PM
One of my former students-he graduated last year-was shot and killed last night around 10 o'clock.

He had just finished playing a game of basketball and was sitting in a car on a dark street, with his cousin. They were waiting for his cousin's ride when another car drove up. It was someone they knew and they argued over a girl his cousin had been seeing. The young man in the car pulled out a gun and shot them. Victor was shot two times in the back. He was treated at a nearby hospital,

The Anger and The Anguish

by qimissung on 01-04-2012 at 01:24 PM
I read several good books in 2011. I read "Candide," "The Crying of Lot 49", "Housekeeping," "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," and "The Dubliners." I read others, but these I read last fall and today it is of "The Dubliners" I speak.

I've been wanting to read something by Joyce. Eventually I hope to read "Ulysses." I think that might be akin to saying that someday I'd like to climb Mount Everest, for

The Bird's Nest

by qimissung on 12-27-2011 at 02:20 PM
looking at it I knew it was different
a bird's nest
full of hope and fear
and the cavalier fulsomeness of life
the blind ability to get up each day under the weight of it all
to go out every day believing you were one of the masses
dressed in the same uniform
believing the same things
that god is good
that love will find a way
believing or hoping to believe that
the others would not notice your vampiric differences

I acquire some books

by qimissung on 12-04-2011 at 07:13 PM
I got up yesterday morning, a Saturday, around 5:45. I washed my face and dressed and walked to my car in the dark. I stopped by my local Starbucks and treated myself to a tall mocha.

I then made my way down Midway to 635; from there to Central Expressway from which I exited at Northwest Highway. My destination was the Half-Price Books located there, or rather the warehouse that I knew was located near it.

Once I arrived I noticed, somewhat to my chagrin, that there
