It's not a huge surprise that my camera and I sought out peaceful images two days ago. The news has been surrounding us for days, reminding us of the horrible events of ten years past. Broadcasts a decade old have been replayed in horrid detail. We've seen photographs and listened to personal accounts. I don't know of a person who doesn't remember how they found out or where they were. Who they were with and who they called. We have been left, still, trying to make sense of it all. Attempting the impossible feat of explaining massive and purposeful destruction to ourselves, our families, our friends and our children.

Ten years ago, on the day immediately after, I took a long walk. One of the things I noticed on that walk......an image that has remained with me......was the cobalt blue September sky. The silence. I was reeling from the bad....but thank goodness was able to find a few moments of peace and beauty. Something I have personally learned is that those moments are abundantly available if you need them......if you look.

I don't know what your experience was, but I hope that you have been able to find some moments like this as well.

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Warmly, Margaret
