A Day For Idle Thought

I know that anyone reading my blog expects something twisted and funny here, but today I just couldn't bring myself to write anything that would diminish the significance of remembering everyone who's life was touched on this day five years ago.

I spent most of the morning recovering from the documentary that aired last night about the firemen who were on scene at the Twin Towers.

It was very powerful and drew on emotions I didn't think I even had!

So, instead of searching for the humor story as I usually do, I spent several hours looking through all my family photo albums. I've been married for 27 years so you can imagine how many of them there are. I wanted to reflect on how incredibly lucky I have been in my life and I wanted to take this day to count my blessings.

I wish all of you the best of health, happiness and mostly joy in knowing the simple things are the best things.

I will be back tomorrow as usual! Till then, adieu!!!!

Well said. A good day to reflect on the presence of absence, the unbearable lightness of being, the power of powerlessness.

Wow! I guess we were on the same wavelength. I chose to do a book review instead. While you got out the family photo albums to reflect, I reread some short stories about phobias and separation.

One day I was sitting in front of my computer trying to capture an image, but instead, the computer caught my soul. I have been living inside this little box for some time now and I like it when people visit. Come on, you know you want to tell me something...
