Tornado State of Mind
Hello! My husband, Leo, downloaded FAIRY CIRCLE on May 8, 2011. Since then we've been friending and blog building and flyer creating. I wanted to start the blog at several different points but unbelievable things kept happening-things that left me paralyzed and staring out in space for great sections of time. My mother died several days ago, cancer, and of course, like everyone in the world, we weren't prepared for our mother's death. With the shock of that still very, very fresh, a horrible storm swept through Massachusetts on June 1st, and with it, huge tornadoes that caused great devastation-some of it right down the street from me. We'll post some video. On the news this morning the reporter said this was the worst storm since the 1950's. 80 structures in Springfield destroyed, 76 in Monson, hundreds of people injured and four people who died. Terrible stories reported that make me just sit here and cry. When I set out with giddy anticipation wondering "what will I blog about?" I never imagined true horror would find me and make everything so simple.
