I only took one picture today, Day 7, but that picture is enough for me for this journal of my summer.

I visited a very dear friend today, my sister in heart and in spirit if not in blood, who has been in my daily thoughts for weeks and will continue to be for months to come.

Tomorrow we head out for the annual camping trip, so I won’t be around in the blogosphere until Sunday evening.
Keep posting whimsy if you have it over the weekend.

I don’t want to

Everyone knows what today is.  Even if we didn’t realize at first what today is, the media won’t let us forget.  And I am not saying that we should forget.  Any American who was alive 10 years ago never will. We will always remember exactly where we were when we first heard the news.  But I don’t want to spend the day pulling the scab off a wound that is healing.

We all had family members that we wanted to be near as soon as possible.

  We all had loved ones that we worried for.  We all eventually found out that someone we knew, (or worse, loved) or someone that a friend of a friend of a friend knew, lost their life that day. (For me it was my “crush” from freshman year of high school – he had been at work in one of the towers.)

So no, I don’t want to spend the day in sadness remembering the horrible events of 10 years ago today.

I’d rather spend it in appreciation of who we are today, what we stand for today, and what is important today.
