"We all return somewhere": Kate's Coney
"We all return somewhere," my daughter, Kate O'Connor Morris, writes in her beautiful essay, published recently in the Evergreen Review. I am her mother and I'm proud, but I also think she's a great writer. And just beginning... These images of Coney Island were taken a few weeks after Hurricane Sandy. The devastation was incredible. Cars filled with water, mountains of sand on the streets, as you can see in this photo of Kate, and yet none on the beach. We walked and took pictures for hours. Then made our way home.
