What Love Looks Like

My kids will do anything to make me smile, make me happy.
We'll not all be together today,
DD was just finishing a film in NY,
but they made extreme effort to be together,
which makes me so happy.
Then they sent me this.
YEP Mama happy.

Happy Thanksgiving
to all of you.
I am thankful we share our lives.

Deep frying my first turkey.
Ben thinks I'll burn the house down.

Backing Up

I love to look backward and remember moments.

I do not want to remember
the moment this country went backward.

It is better to light a candle
than to curse the darkness
Eleanor Roosevelt

I'm gonna need more candles

Sadness Strikes Again

Leonard Cohen

Passing just a few months after his muse Marianne
What this man's music meant to me
is beyond words.
I became who I was to become
sitting in the dark, listening to this album 

I am 
so very, very sad

We're the Lizard Among the Vipers

We're the lizard among the vipers, but there is hope and we MUST keep charging forward. (Watch the entire short video, via Twisted Sifter)

I tried to say it a hundred ways today, erased them all, but this palpitating scene explains my heart better than any mere words I could muster up. Frantic, nearly choked and broken.

In my lifetime, there have been two days that felt like yesterday did to me. The assassination of President Kennedy and 9-11. Utter despair and disbelief. I awoke to other nations gravely concerned over my country's future. Death presents itself unwanted. 
This time it was invited in by my countrymen.
