Anyone feeling the effects of hurricane Gustav?
Might hit New Orleans tomorrow (Monday).
Hope the levies hold!

Pensacola here, Perdido Bay, specifically. Have some 20 MPH sustained with gusts slightly higher than that. Rain been sporadic all day but starting to get more regular as time goes on. Wind currently from the NE and has been that way most of the day. I'm waiting patiently for the turn to the SE as that will put my boat in the lee of the land and calm things down, at least on this side of the bay. NE is practically the worst direction for the wind to come from where I"m at. I hope everyone else out there is fairing well. Good luck to everyone, especially those a bit farther west than I.

As I sit, a swirling sea of passion gives it's poems in waves underneath me.
The whispers of the sun in my eyes, a silence within.
Rhythm of the surf, drums of the sea. Thoughts tumble and toss about the deep blue abyss inside me, where the love of you dwells.
I'm fighting currents to get back to you, listening to the flow of your liquid language as you beckon me, "Come Play"
