Greetings! Back from London - it was heavenly. But, alas, this is my reality at the moment. That's me under a pile of phone messages and emails and ...

To all my neighbors, friends and colleagues who lost dear ones, my prayers are with you all today. May this world one day live in peace.

'they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.' Isaiah 40:31

Gratitude Friday: Friendship

Believe me, I speak only for your own good. I may tell you unpleasant truths, but that is a proof of my friendship. I advise you, therefore, to lay eggs, and learn to purr as quickly as possible. ~ Hans Christian Andersen, The Ugly Duckling

What would we do without friends? They know no boundaries (they will tell you like it is and know when you want to hear it), they know no time (morning, noon, night), they laugh at you when you need a laugh, they cry with you, they hold you tighter even when you don't know you need a hug, they can finish your sentence and yes, sometimes, you don't even need to speak and you can communicate.

My life is blessed. Hope yours is too.

Boston Blitz #9 -Copley Square Library

Favorite building in Boston. This is the central location for the Boston Public Libraries, affectionately called the BPL. Located in the heart of Boston, this historic building dates back to the early 180s's and is flanked by the world-famous Trinity Church (photo from net), Old South Church and across from the Fairmont Copley, which was once known as the Copley Plaza. It's a bustling intersection in Boston, one block down from the Prudential Center, one block away from 'downtown' Boston (Public Garden and Boston Common), one block away from Newbury Street, a trendy upscale shopping etc street. The statues in front of the library represent Art and Science. Wonder which one she is?

Boston Blitz #8 - New Bedford, MA

Herman Melville's New Bedford is just a tad bit different in this century. But the streets still hold the history of mariners. Bethels were built to keep the mariners out of the brothels; banks were built to store the money of the rich captains and whalers. If you look closely at the bank, notice the difference in the two entrances? Can you tell which entrance the sea captains entered and which the hired hands entered?

New Bedford is about a 45 minute ride south of Boston - a city rich with history and ethnicity. It's actually closer to Providence, RI than Boston. Ty and I noticed another close connection, of course tied to whaling, between Boston and Hawaii. It seems Hawaiians were recruited to educate the New Bedford whalers. What a trip that would have been from Hawaii to MA on a schooner - around the capes.....heroic!


What will
our children do in the morning?
Will they wake with their hearts wanting to play,
the way wings
should? –

What will our children do in the morning
if they do not see us fly?
