If it’s Friday … well, this Friday, we need to be thinking about everyone who will be affected by this terrible storm!
I simply can’t bring myself to post about another wonderful day on the Côte D’Azur when so many people on the East Coast of the United States and Canada are waiting to see what this massive storm may bring in the next day or two. My thoughts are with them.
I’ll bring you back to France next Friday.
In the meantime this inukshuk is here to point the way to safety as Hurricane Irene approaches. An inukshuk (also spelled inuksuk, plural: inuksuit), is an Inuit word that literally translated means “stone man that points the way” and is symbolic of the human spirit. They are stone cairns that were originally erected by Inuit at prominent locations throughout the barrens to serve as guideposts or markers. The Inukshuk symbolism is far reaching – they were a beacon to those looking for the right direction and a safe passage. I hope this one guides you and yours safely through the storm.
The hands of many and the efforts of an entire group were required to build these massive sculptures. They are the result of a consensus of purpose, of focused action by a united group, and teach us that as good as our individual efforts may be, together we can do even greater things.
Together we are all focused on your safety.
