today I am watching the trees in my backyard
some still full of leaves
they are only just beginning to bend at their crowns in the outer reaches of Sandy's winds
the rakes are put away
the chickens' run is covered
the kids are being sent home early from school
its the kind of weather that makes me uneasy

anemophobia- fear of wind
ombrophobia- fear of rain
lilapsophobia- fear of tornados and hurricanes
(i am thinking titles for a new series of paintings)

mostly today I am thinking about my family and friends and folks further south
I hope everyone stays safe
