Two Things to Talk About
First, can you belive we opened B & B a month ago? It seems like last night, but at the same time it is like we did it last year. Where is life going? I feel like I had just found out I could get the rights and now the show is already a month gone. We are all getting older faster than we realize. My nieces turn nine on Tuesday. NINE!!! I was there when they were born- good grief! And now they it is nine years later. They ask me if they will ever get to know what is like to have a cousin- I change the subject. I think time is the one thing we cherish the least because we think we always have it. Silly mortals. Which leads me to thought number two: I saw World Trade Center last night. It is very well done, not at all a cheezy re-enactment or anything that true-life disaster movies are. There are no moments of straight in your face we are showing this to get an emotional response, but rather a very gritty, true life example of what a handful of people among millions were experiencing. It is not a movie for everyone, but at the same time it is an experience to be had by most- puts the whole issue of time in perspective. Who knows if we will see the sun set that we saw rose this morning. Time is one thing I will never take for granted.
