September 11th

Several weeks ago, Jen asked me if I would guest blog for her while she, Maddie and Brian went on vacation. Jen, I hope that you are all getting some much-needed rest. Maddie, that means you need to sleep, too.

It is a lovely, breezy day here, Jen, so you are missing out on one of the joys of New York in the fall. The entire city seems like an ambient, outdoor room. In a previous life, I would be people watching at an outdoor café, sipping some warm beverage and writing in my journal. The city seems empty today. Maybe it is just because it is the usual Sunday quiet that I savored on long walks years ago as a single woman living with roommates in the East Village. But it seems different. Somber. When I post this blog it will be September 11th, the 5th anniversary of the attack of The World Trade Center. Much will be said about it tomorrow, many will be remembered. I think about the families who ache with the emptiness of loss and especially the parents and children who have lost spouses and parents. I pray for the survivors. May you find redemption in unexpected places, may your lives be filled with grace.
