Five Things


{A shot I took from my last trip to New York in September}

At the beginning of the week I felt so removed from Hurricane Sandy. Several days later I still can't comprehend the extent of damage, devastation, and loss, but what I did witness - from across the country - was the strength and perseverance of people coming together. I made a donation to the Red Cross (you can do the same here) and my thoughts are with those who have been affected. I'm traveling to the East Coast next week for a segment on The Today Show next Friday, 11/9 and then onto the D.C. area for an additional book signing (details here) on 11/13. It should be a busy week, so I'm looking forward to a relaxing couple of days off.
