The truth is it is hard to keep working and living when you haven't heard a word from your loved ones. We just pray that they are all right. My grandmothers are in San Sebastián and Mayaguez. I have a good friend in Carolina who has two small children. Everyone is asking, begging for word of their town. A status, a shred of peace that their family is ok. We have to wait. Communication is said to be restored in 72 hours. The news reporters are scrambling to reach some parts of the island, they can't. Electricity is going to be nonexistent for months. So let's keep praying for Puerto Rico and for Mexico who is going through a lot, too.

I started the year receiving a gift from my Irish friend @strahanpatrick who happens the most talented Blacksmith I know.
Patrick sent me an Old #Irish#Amulet named The Nine Irons.
In the 1800s Irish Blacksmiths were often called upon to make a set of miniatures. All over Ireland, there were traditions of the power of iron in bringing gold luck, averting and healing sickness, countering clarms and spells and warding off mischievous or malignant spirits and influences.
The Plough Coulter and Share to help a child afflicted by fits and starts while sleeping,
The Shovel and Spade Blades to help retrieve lost items,
The Hatchet and Saw were to ward off negative influences,
The Griddle Pan made red hot warded off any challenges,
The Horse Shoe Nail carried for good luck,
The Cross was added by the people
If there is a moment where I am inclined to believe in an amulet, and good luck charm is right now with another hurricane approaching and the Island’s infrastructure in such a weak state.
