I lived my first 12 years there. Been to all the places that have been taken apart by Sandy--have more memories than you can shake a stick at, too.

Been watching the news. Haven't been really back there since '82, but even so, I still recognized what was left, especially around Seaside Heights where I spent a lot of my summer time, on the boardwalk, on the beach, in the bay foot-shuffling for flounder (and getting terrified by the mere thought of horseshoe crabs...).

It hurts to see; but I know my former state-mates are a strong bunch. They'll make it through. New Jersey people are tough, opinionated, stubborn, resourceful and know when to stick together.

I'll be doing what I can to help out my place of birth. I'm hoping others will as well.

Take care, guys, be strong. I'm thinking of you.

So I'm watching Winter Solstice, which takes place in New Jersey. It's standard fair, but a couple of things came to mind.

1) I guess I still more or less sound like I'm from Jersey, if how they were talking (especially 'dad') is any indication.

2) Damn, I miss NJ. Trees. Green. Willows. Town sidewalks. Fireflies.
