Well, I'm in my safe home, and I'm healthy, and I have some pretty good coffee.
I spent the morning watching Trading Spaces, talking on the phone to a friend, putting in a laundry, looking at some stunning pictures of New Orleans throughout the hurricane, and thinking about the person I knew best that died when the towers came down. She and I grew up together, we didn't really get along. I wasn't sorry that our lives had taken separate paths, but I am very, very sorry that her life ended the way that it did.
I have no answers, but I have people to talk to, chores to do, places to go. Life does indeed, go on.
