Here comes the story of Hurricane. Bob Dylan’s iconic song is about Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, a boxer who was wrongfully accused of murder and who was released after 20 years in prison. Sad story, great movie starring Denzel Washington. In Florida in September, “hurricane” means the beast lurking offshore, ready to huff and puff and blow your roof off.

I’ve lived on the East Coast of Florida for over 32 years, and survived a lot of gnarly storms. We’ve evacuated, or toughed it out at home through six major hurricanes and countless close-calls. Beautiful though the coast may be, as soon as the weather channels start declaring a hurricane alert, my heart sinks.
As this post is published, Hurricane Dorian may be getting ready to land on Florida’s coast, either close to us or far, but still wreaking havoc on people’s lives. Damn you, hurricanes! They make it hard to focus on Getting Visible.
My octopus tee (similar) is trying to escape but only a couple of tentacles have snaked their way out. The shoes are comfortable wedges by Sofft. And I double-braceleted again, with my beaded name bracelet and Bryan’s sweet old ID cuff.
