    Thank you for your kind gesture Rev Dorris. Here is something from a book I hope to be ready by next month, it is a report from my cousin: “It was around 5:30 p.m. on a typical summer evening in the Washington, D.C. area. That means hot and humid with the usual forecast of thunderstorms. I was watching the news when the emergency broadcast system broke in with that annoying alarm that signals the possibility of a dangerous situation. A tornado had been spotted approximately 3 miles from my home and I was being advised to seek shelter immediately in a basement or interior room. I have no basement, so that was not an option. The only interior room is a small powder room. My husband decided the safest place for us was our garage. He felt the steel beam would remain intact in the event the tornado touched down. We hurriedly grabbed a transistor radio and headed for the garage to wait it out. While there, I had one of the strangest experiences of my life. My mind always operates in overdrive, with at least ten different thoughts bombarding it at any given time; what I have accomplished, what I am doing, what I am going to do, what I should be doing, etc.. But this time my complete focus was on the tornado heading in our direction. After about twenty minutes, the danger had passed. When I returned to the house and my mind shifted back into its normal overdrive mode, I suddenly realized what I had just experienced. For the first time that I can recall, my mind was clear of all extraneous thoughts and I had existed totally “in the moment”. This was the most exhilarating feeling of freedom I had ever known. I am not hoping for another tornado scare, but I would certainly welcome the experience of totally decluttering my mind again.” Virginia Coscia
