20+ inches of snow. 70 mph winds. lightening and thunder coupled with total white-out conditions.
there’s nothing like a hellacious blizzard—“snowpocaplyse 2011” is what they’re calling it—to remind you of how lucky you are.
toasty and warm.
food in the cupboards.
sitting here at home, we’ve been immune from the sting of cold. whipping winds. treacherous roads. brutal reality of no place to go.
it reminds me of maslow’s famous hierarchy of human needs (remember the multi-colored triangle from grade school? ...or is the better question, why do i remember it?!). it essentially maps out all the basic human needs that fuel our actions and motivations.
it's ironic that we’re all so evolved, socializing, figuring out relationships, trying to belong, striving to achieve, seeking fulfillment and “self-actualization” (whatever that means)…
but sometimes it boils down to the basics.
home. health. and heart.
the things that matter most.
