Monday Blues…

I had a perfectly frivolous post ready for today, but in all honesty, at this moment in time, I just don’t have the appetite for it.

Me and The Tall Guy have had quite a busy weekend, but we’ve managed to keep an eye on the progress in New Orleans, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

I can’t imagine what it’s like to lose everything in one fell swoop, and I hope to God that I never experience anything like this.

The Tall Guy and I, and my company, have donated some money to the American Red Cross, but somehow it feels like a hollow gesture. Right now I feel heartsick, and it’s difficult to get the images of those people suffering out of my head. It almost feel like depression, but I suspect that’s the self-absorbed part of my character trying to make it all about me, and how I feel.

Anyway, apologies for the lack of posts, but I will remind you that the Tuesday Special Interview with Lori Foster is up tomorrow.

For now, if any of you wish to help, PBW has a list of links, where you can donate. Please give generously.

    I think you should take a day, curl up with your TBR pile and escape. The situation in the South is horrendous, but people are rallying around the cauise, and right now, the one thing the Red Cross has been begging for is financial donations so you have done all that you can in a way that is deeply appreciated.

    I can understand what you mean Karen. Marcia and I being a tennis fan, you would think that we’d be glued to the TV watching the US Open. But everytime we turn on the TV, we are rivetted to the news channels with continuing reports from those areas hit by the hurricane.

    Karen, it’s hard to talk about anything else at the moment, with so much coverage, but I hope this means more people will help.
