Hugo, 1989

After coastal waters stretched into our homes, our lives, our histories, days stretched into weeks. Mourning washed over us in hot waves of stillness, silence, and salt.

The twenty-six years since could have been twenty-four hours. Flooded memories know nothing of time.

  1. So glad to see you back on the grid, Genna! I wasn’t in Charleston for Hugo. I can’t even imagine the feeling after that kind of destruction. Thanks for joining us! I really enjoyed your entry :)

    1. It’s been way too long!! I’ve missed you guys!!

      I actually wasn’t in Charleston during Hugo either, but I read so many pieces on the experience this week, and they inspired this post.

      Hope to be a regular contributor to the grid again!! :)
