Life unfolds ... some of it here. This blog began as a way to focus on the good things in the midst of a crisis and be a connection to friends and family when it seemed to take all of my time just to weather the storms. It seems to have transformed into a sanctuary of musing and inspiration. Feel free to join me!

The skies were beautiful both to and from Boston. There was one very strange part about flying in, however. At one point coming into the city, all the lights disappeared and we were out over the water for what seemed like a long time. It was very silent and eerie.

The walkway leads you through gas chambers (one for each concentration camp). Quotes from the stories of people are on the walls and engraved in the stones. I didn't realize this until the end, but if you look down through the grates, there are thousands of little lights symbolizing the eyes of those who died.
I didn't understand this well yet (shoah), but I intend to ask my Jewish friend more questions. My heart was sorrowed as well as touched.

This was too weird ... look what happened to the egg in our microwave! We laughed over that one for a while. It looks like a bird's nest!

I just found this photo tonight ... didn't even realize it was in with the pack of pictures from Grandpa's visit in September, 2004. Thus I fully support my strange claim to KEEP EVERYTHING ... I'm a digital packrat, but it pays off.

A school project (for junior high) had both of them staring at the oven ... an odd sight in my house!

The kitchen queens are at it again, this time with the hit "Martian Pizza" complete with a green crust and purple sauce!

Chicago ... one of my favorites!
Who knew that airports could be so artistic? I've seen some great ones in the past year. This one appealed to my sense of design with colorblocks flanking either side of the moving walkway.

On my way to Tulsa ... I get to fly into Chicago! Suddenly I find myself in Chicago an awful lot! The kids would be jealous. They loved being here last fall and would give anything to come back again.

DISNEY! What a Christmas Holiday!
What can top practically being in a shooting game with your best friend? WINNING! Next time ... I win.
Our dining reservations happened to be at a place on the main square ... how blessed are we? With the exception of stray balloons, we had quite an amazing elevated view for the parade.
Stunning ... as with everything Disney, it's over-the-top and I loved it! Both me and my camera loved it!
