This storm passed over Jost van Dyke, sharing its brief blustery winds with those of us on Tortola.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

Daily gratitudes:
The little old man on the street rocking out along with Kelsea and me to the music from the truck radio downtown last weekend
Not setting the house on fire when I cooked pork chops
How the curtains move in the breeze from the storm that never came
The curiously strange dogs at the small farm down the road
Paint horses
