up a tree
In light of the Hurricane Charley-induced hassles I went through (which I realize were nothing compared with what happened where it actually made landfall), I’ve since been loathe to talk or think any more about the storm than I’ve had to. I’ve contributed to relief efforts, but past that, have avoided most of the latest news about the post-Charley recovery.

But the above image caught my eye. It was snapped in Punta Gorda, the heart of the hurricane’s path, by Kinfay Moroti as the companion to an article about some of the personal, priceless items lost to Charley.

Mainly, I just liked the juxtaposition of what appears to be a largely intact Bible amid strewn debris. That it’s open to the New Testament is especially apt: It conveys a sense of the more compassionate, forgiving God arriving in the wake of some Old Testament-style destruction.
