  • I was on a train in the underground subway tube when the San Francisco ( big) quake hit in 1989. I wrote a short story about my experiences that appearedin an online ezine. In 2001, after the original 9/11, I received a call from the big TV network in NYC to appear on the Ananda Lewis talk show to discuss *surviving disasters*–TV station researchers had found my Quake story online. I did not accept–the last thing I wanted to do was fly to NYC with the twin towers rubble still smoking. My advice, based on who I am(of course) is to do anything but nothing. By that I mean, sketch during daylight hours, by candlelight, write. You are in a situation with no electricity–notice, use your time, use your daylight. For a major disaster you will be in a state of shock. Write down your thoughts and feelings in your journal each day. Take a walk during the day and pick up interesting bits (leaves perhaps) to sketch. Think how artist lived before electricity. You can use your digital camera as long as the battery is charged. Take lots of pics. Just figure it out as you go…if sketching makes you feel better, sketch some more. If writing is a release, concentrate on that. It may seem obvious but in upsetting situations often people hang on to their upset rather than find a release. So that is the goal for you to find, a creative release– what works for you…
