Hi Guys,
For the next several weeks, I'm going to have to limit my postings to three times a week:(Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays).

The demands on my time have recently increased significantly and some things will just have to give a little. Unfortunately, this weblog is one of them.

From where I stand:
This last week was a strange time in New York. It was a time when the public face and the private person were slightly at odds. Feelings were mixed and mostly intimate. There was nothing to say and yet, there was a sense that words were called for.

In tribute to 9/11, I offer you a poem ("Grief") by Elizabeth Barret Browning

I TELL you, hopeless grief is passionless;
That only men incredulous of despair,
Half-taught in anguish, through the midnight air
Beat upward to God's throne in loud access
Of shrieking and reproach.

Full desertness,
In souls as countries, lieth silent-bare
Under the blanching, vertical eye-glare
Of the absolute Heavens.

Deep-hearted man, express
Grief for thy Dead in silence like to death--

Most like a monumental statue set
In everlasting watch and moveless woe
Till itself crumble to the dust beneath.

Touch it; the marble eyelids are not wet:
If it could weep, it could arise and go.

And yet we know against all human desperation...

"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." -John11:25

May "the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost." -Romans 15:13

I should be blogging but..
the day is so soft and the summer is so short and the view of Manhattan across the river is a landscape from a fairytale.

One interesting thought...
Sow a thought, Reap an action;
Sow an action, Reap a habit;
Sow a habit, Reap a character;
Sow a character, Reap a Destiny.

And another...
"if you do not travel with Him whom you seek, you will not find Him at the end of your journey."

Till tomorrow
