Blue Sky

The sky is so blue today.  Whenever it is blue like this it reminds me of that day in September, before it filled with ash and smoke and turned yellow and thick.  Even in all the chaos, at times it was so quiet here.  A stunned silence.

I couldn't sleep this morning.  When the sun started to rise I took Willow out for a walk and grabbed my camera.




She was reluctant to pose for me today.  This was the only snapshot I could muster up.


My chunky little girl makes me smile.  Find something that makes you smile today.

Great advice - this is never an easy day, focussing on the good and happy is the best way to take it back

A day we all should remember - it's hard to believe it was only 9 years ago.

It was definitely a shocking day, I remember it well as my sister lives in NY and works in the UN building and they were worried that they too were on the list of targets.

Great photos. I remember that blue sky.

Two things have made me smile today: Spending time with my grandchildren this afternoon, and your pictures!

Ironically, that day, here in the middle of nowhere Illinois, the sky was that kind of blue.
A stunned silence.
The perfect way to describe it.

I thought the same thing about the sky here this morning (just like that first picture--and I'm 3000 miles away). I feel like it is always the same stark, still, blue every September 11th as it was that day. It is unsettling, but also somehow a sign that somehow, we carry on.

Your dog has the most gorgeous face--she's so expressive; love seeing pictures of her!

I love your photos! The expression on your dog's face reminds me of my dog Jessie. I have seen that look on her many times. The "please, what do I have to do to get you to stop taking pictures? Tell me, and I will do it"
