It has been a beautiful September day, very much like this date nine years ago. It is eerily peaceful, clear, crisp and quiet. Much like that day.
This morning we watched the 9/11 commemoration at Shanksville, PA, where both Laura Bush and Michelle Obama spoke. Both women were equally impressive, kind, and non-political, which was refreshing and appropriate. It was a lovely ceremony, though still so very sad.
This afternoon, with nothing planned, we drove to our favorite apple orchard and now there's a pie baking in the oven.
It feels like fall. And I like it very much.
