Damballah Titid (President Aristide as Damballah)

I have been really enjoying the fact that the usual 50 or so robo-calls a day have ceased.  But it turns out that we have been without phone service at the gallery for the last week!  Apparently a wet cable many blocks west of us, we are told.  
Thank you Verizon!
