9.11.09

Haiku

leaves, so much the same
how can we know that they fall
from different trees
~patti edmon 9.11.09



For a moment let us put aside our differences and look at ourselves not as Democrat or Republican, black or white, Presbyterian or Baptist, Jewish or Muslim. Or atheist. Or corporate, academic, small business owner or fast food cook. Let us consider how this world would be if we put aside bias and judgment and remember that we are all one people.
For an amazing post and names of all the individuals who died on 9.11.01, visit Patti Digh's blog. She challenges us to appreciate our freedom to choose how we move forward, as we remember those who do not have that opportunity. I choose to seek grace with an open heart and undivided mind and an abundance of thanks for all that I have been blessed with on this sunny, warm, quiet day.

Hi Patti! I love this post and tribute to 9/11. I always think this country was founded on the idea that it is good to agree to disagree and be ok with that. xo

Love this photo It speaks to me in many ways.. the blocks are assorted wood, some pine some maple, some oak. I had some of my boys blocks left over and I had a friend's husband with power tools cut some for me.
