new look...

I'm getting a little tired of the way this blog looks. So, if it changes its look a few times in the next few days (or weeks) till I settle on something, don't be surprised!

the beach





We went to the shore Sunday evening for a picnic and a romp in the ocean. It was too cold for swimming, but it was beautiful end-of-summer weather. We didn't plan to do anything specific to remember the events of 9-11-2001, but being right across the sound from NYC did make me think of the horrors of that day. It made me remember to cherish every day that I live with security, safety, and the freedom to have a quiet evening at the beach with my family. I am a lucky woman-- may I never forget that.
