Maretta and Ed McKenna set up candlelight luminaries on April 1. Maretta took inspiration from annual luminary events in Hamlin Plantation, especially those around the winter holidays.

Fitness chalk challenges appeared over Hamlin from the beginning of school closings. The one on Shell Fish Court was sparked by Maretta McKenna’s container of chalk left out for passerbys to use. “I’ve got this chalk sitting in my garage, so if the kids can use it I’m happy,” McKenna said. “You know, it gives me a sense of hope and belonging to the community and I think that’s important.”

A plastic bin holding snacks sits on the porch of Sandra Klein’s house with a sign reading, “MUSC, Roper & Trident Snack Bin Drop Off.” Klein began collecting healthy snacks after finding inspiration through Facebook. The reach of Klein’s snack campaign had expanded to East Cooper Medical Center in Mount Pleasant by March 28. “I’m planning to just continue doing this now for a while and just kind of gauging where we are next week versus the next week,” Klein said.

As I spun the focus ring of my camera, granules of sand crunched within. The wind howled in my ears. And, of course, there were people using flashlights at the bottom of the boardwalk. The circumstances could not be any worse. I had given up. I figured there was no way I would be able to take any photos in the condition the beach was in. As we crossed the boardwalk back to where my car was parked, my friend sat on a bench to adjust their shoes. I put my camera on the ground. The clouds opened, revealing the glowing core of the Milky Way behind them. I flipped my camera on. The settings were already in place, I just had to press the shutter. I screamed when I saw the result.

It was a warm, still night when I arrived at the top of the parking garage. A storm flashed lightning over the ocean behind me, and the sun glowed orange behind the Ravenel Bridge in front of me. A plane passed over my head and into the silent storm. I stood at the rail, feeling the hot breeze from the street below flip up my hair. A church became enshrouded in its nighttime light, and no cars were passing below me -- the stoplight was red. But the stoplight within me turned green, and I knew the calm before the storm would be frozen still by my camera.
