My heart is aching. Since Sandy hit on Monday and Tuesday our house has been consumed with gratitude. We are so thankful to be together with a roof over our heads. Thankful to have power again. Thankful for gas in our cars. Thankful that none of our dear friends were hurt in the monstrous storm. We worry and pray for all the others who weren't so lucky.

I will catch up on the blog soon, but first I want to share some of the images from this week that have touched me the most. The stories of loss are heart wrenching, especially in Lower Manhattan and Queens -- two areas that mean very much to us. In time I know that residents will recover and rebuild what they can. That's what New Yorkers do. If you want to help click here.
