Quote of the Day

From Marianne Williamson's The Gift of Change:

"The only way we will triumph over hate is to become as deeply committed to love as some people are committed to hate, as deeply devoted to expressing our love as some people are devoted to expressing their hate, and as firm in our conviction that love is our mission as some are that hate is theirs."


Today I was the subject of a blog headline over at Creek Running North. Now I attempt to see if I can create a link to that post. I think it worked.

This is the first time I've ever been the subject of a blog headline. What a way to start!

Chris's dog Zeke is aging rapidly and finding movement difficult. I suggested Chris check out the Bottoms Up leash (gonna go berserk with links, I think). He did, and it helps. Zeke got out today for a long outing, so everybody's happy for the moment.

Now I'm off to write a couple of due or overdue notes to various and sundry.

September 11, 2006

I wasn't directly affected by the events of September 11, 2001. No one I know died or was even seriously inconvenienced by events that day. Yes, I spent much of the day at work watching events unfold 3 time zones away. I noticed the silence in the skies.

Today, five years later, I do feel the sadness of remembering the emotions and the sorrow of that day. I have a pull to music today. For some reason, the deceased members of the Beatles are pulling me today. Thank heaven for YouTube, so I am able to hear "Imagine" and "My Sweet Lord" today.
