By Franklin Square Park, Southport, NC

Journal - So good to get a bit of normalcy in our routines. Sketched in Southport with Katie, Elizabeth and Chris. Sat by Franklin Square Park and sketched the house across from the corner. Piles of debris still line the streets, detours everywhere, sinkholes with barricades, and more. But slowly things are returning to normal - there are ways around the streets, trees still have leaves on most of them, and sketching with friends reminds us that things are being repaired. We chatted about those far less fortunate, where donations can still be made, and reminded one another that this recovery is still going on. ...

Richmond HIlls, Georgia

Journal - Life is slowly getting back to normal after Hurricane Florence. There's still a lot of destruction, families displaced, homes still flooded ... Art often can help with relieving the stress and worries, and focus, for a while, on something more pleasant.

While evacuated, I spent some time with my daughter and her family, and then a few days in Savannah Georgia. There I met up with fellow evacuee and friend, Gwen. We spent a good part of one day sketching Savannah. On another day, my husband and I visited Richmond Hills - The Henry Ford Museum and JF Gregory Park for a 3 mile old rice canal walk. Here's the sketch from the day in Richmond Hills - some sketched on site, most afterwards. I may eventually add color to this page - but the sketching was a lot of fun and relieved a lot of anxiety.

We are home, safe, sound and doing well ... Grateful to have been spared the worst of Florence.
