Series: Grand Turk sunrise- End
- No.6: Connection lost-We has a major hurricane last year. Her name was Irma, and just like her brothers and sisters before her she left us broken, confused and low spirited (there were other emotions, but those were the main ones). It took many things from us, the worst being our connection. It was the first hurricane Ive experienced where I couldn’t call and say that I safe, alive and doing well in the most cheerful way that only I know how. I can still remember my little sister sobbing when she saw me exit terminal 5, I can still remember the flood of missed calls and text on my phone when I got my first signal bar in two weeks, and when I took a list of names and numbers to call/text and tell relatives of friends and strangers on the island and say “hey it’s all good, we’re all good over here”. I can still remember my dad (my hero) driving around the island picking people that called him to transport them to a shelter while Irma howled. I can remember thinking that he might die . I can remember feeling so small, thinking that I might die too. It’s funny how a forgotten broken tower could make remember and feel so much.
I’m sleepy. I’m up every 3am to take a photo at 5am #no6 #sunrise #morning #newday #sky #clouds #sun #shadow #abandon #contrast #remember #savethefishies #nofilter #nature #newdaysamesun #series #beautiful #storytime #communicationtower #broken #hurricaneaftermath #wishyallcouldseeitforyourself
