Kym...

Finally made it onto a 3WV stream... I have a long busy day at my desk today... and you are wrapped around my head for the duration ('cept from 12:10 to 12:50).

"lay down sally...."

k..

baby gone...

That was victoria... my coworkers' 5 month old ball of sugar. (she likes me... apparently this is unusual for victoria... Z and I babysat her a while ago to let the new mom and dad do the dinner and a movie thing...)

awestruck...

I work in downtown Ottawa (Canada's capital city)... about 4 blocks from the Parliament Buildings, our seat of government...

(click here for the "live" hill cam...)

Ottawa's workerbee's were given a chance to attend a memorial service on the Hill at lunch today... So my coworkers and I went for the walk... We were stopped two blocks from the hill... the unbelievable crowds exceeded the attendance at our July 1st celebrations. The Prime minister, the US Ambassador, and our Governor General spoke to the attending crowd after the RCMP performed both anthems.

Silence followed... the gentle crying of a small baby echoed across the air and somewhere someone lost their grip on a clutch of three balloons... one red, one white and one blue, tied together with ribbons... they climbed into a blue sky giving everyone a chance to tip their heads up and let their tears pool. Everywhere I looked I could see American Flags... hand drawn on paper, little hand wavers... or full-on flags held by solemn attendants...

Awesome...

wow... can you feel that...

What a difference love can make... from so far to so many. Oh my...

The world changed on Tuesday...

The communities of the world came closer together today...

Out of the ashes...


The morning rain clouds up my window...
And I can't see at all.
And even if I could it'd all be gray
Put your picture on my wall...
It reminds me that it's not so bad...
It's not so bad...
...
I want to thank you ....
For giving me the best day of my life...


I can feel it.

LJ Birthday Baby...

Happy Birthday Kath... el. puff katty



Happy birthday to my long time friend and (shhhhh) lil'flasher friend The One And Only Puff Katty.

A performer at heart, she must have been an absolutely doll or a terror as a wee girl sprite... the performers always are one extreme or the other!!

I hope this next year is filled with blessings and ZERO broken bones...

Do a little dance... Make a little love... Get... well, you know the story.

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Katty-the-puff-monster, Happy Birthday to you...

And ps. I thought of putting the Happy Birthday message on those pics but they were seriously filtered and I wanted your birthday to be shouted from the roof tops...
