I Feel the Earth Move Under My Feet

Brownstone Beauty
Fort Greene Park Steps
Turkey Carcass Soup
I took the roasted turkey breast carcass and made a rich broth. This time, I made a sofrito and allowed it to develop flavor before adding the vegetables and stock. 

I think turkey soup in particular, can be so celebratory, almost as if it's part of a holiday meal which the bird was but now with a lovely transformation.   
That afternoon I was on my bed lamenting and suddenly it began to shake.  Just before, there was a sort of rumbling sound that rose up from the ground.  We live above the subway, so at first I thought it was just that but it became stronger and the little bottles of assorted beauty products on my vanity began wiggling.  I got up and screamed, 'What is happening??!'.  My mate was running towards me and we both said, It's an Earthquake! and met in the doorway.  After that it was over in seconds and I had to run out to go to therapy but it was interesting seeing the city react in real time.  It's hard to call it a celebration, but since it was not a tragedy and it was a shared city-wide event, there was something cool about it.
