11th - A day
that will be spoken of in history. Three hijacked airplanes crashed
into the world trade center in New York, and the Pentagon in Washington.
My heart aches, and I can hardly function in normal daily activities.
I can't seem to focus, or to make myself pretend that meanial things matter.
This is almost more devestating as Pearl harbor. Our America.
Our safety, and our fear all splattered across the radio and television
waves. It is incredible. I was there, only a week ago.
It is impossible to realize, to imagine how many must have died in New
York today. It is incredible. Frightening, in its scope, but...
more frightening in the fact that we are not safe,not anywhere. People
who would do this, have no care about human life, no consideration for
the magnitude of their actions. All one can do is pray, to hope for
what can be the future, and that somehow we can learn from this.
is closed. All government buildings, all colleges, all airports and
all planes are grounded. It is amazing. Another plane crashed that
was headed towards California. America will survive, this time.

and are even guided through the arch that surrounds it. It gave me
the only sense of order I can latch onto on this day of days. . .
I've moved our WISH LISTS HERE
"You inspire, you love beyond reasoning, you embrace
the world with an outlook I can only imagine having, you care passionately
about your art however it is expressed, you are a terrific mother in the
face of seeming unappreciation for your efforts, you are gifted with an
inner light that acts as a beacon to others, you are multi-talented and
freely share those talents...
( The old 'Who
am I' can be found on any of the Archived Pages )
The unsolicited 'who am I'... See if you agree.
You continually reach out to touch others with
your light, encouraging them to keep their own flame lit and shining brightly,
you lift those who cannot see and uncover their eyes to the wondrous possibilities
around them, your honesty is something all should strive for and learn
from for it is never spoken unkindly, but with warmth though never coddling...
Candid; honest; imperfect. Exploratory,
literate, talented. Eclectic, endearing, forgiving. Quirky, selective,
