(But do feel free to do a search on World Trade Center-- you'll find some 16+ pages of collectables and not-so-collectables that are suddenly horrendously overpriced.)

I found this appropriate when it was written.
I find it oddly appropriate today.
Perhaps it's just the escapist in me talking.

End of the Innocence

Remember when the days were long
and rolled beneath the deep blue sky
didn’t have a care in the world
with mommy and daddy standing by
but "happily ever after" fails
and we’ve been poisoned by these fairy tales
the lawyers dwell on small details
since daddy had to fly

But I know a place we can go
that’s still untouched by men
we’ll sit and watch the clouds roll by
and the tall grass wave in the wind
you can lay your head back on the ground
and let your hair fall all around me
offer up your best defense
but this is the end
this is the end of the innocence

Oh beautiful for spacious skies
but now those skies are threatening
they’re beating plowshares into swords
for this tired old man that we elected king
armchair warriors often fail
and we’ve been poisoned by these fairy tales
the lawyers clean up all details
since daddy had to lie

But I know a place where we can go
and wash away this sin
we’ll sit and watch the clouds roll by
and the tall grass wave in the wind
just lay your head back on the ground
and let your hair spill all around me
offer up your best defense
but this is the end
this is the end of the innocence

Who knows how long this will last
now we’ve come so far, so fast
but, somewhere back there in the dust
that same small town in each of us
I need to remember this
so baby give me just one kiss
and let me take a long last look
before we say goodbye

Just lay your head back on the ground
and let your hair fall all around me
offer up your best defense
but this is the end
this is the end of the innocence

An older i llustration (newish to me-- coloured this one Monday night).
I likes to colour

Thinking I'm finally getting the hang of layers and alpha channels now.

I like colouring pictures with 1s and 0s-- even with simple crayons-- so much more than colouring objective data with emotional bias. But that's just me (these days, anyway).

I had something important to say here... but I forgot it.

Oh, yeah-- the wedding was fun. Everything from cutoffs and tie-dyes, to leather-bound bikers, to semi-formal normalish folk. Weird hanging out with xso. But I suppose that will always be somewhat odd. Especially at weddings.

His Mom called me today to tell me that his brother and sister-in-law weren't hurt in the explosion (they work in NYC). I think his sister-in-law actually saw it happen. I'm so glad they're OK. I enjoyed seeing them at the wedding. I miss my other family. Thinking I should keep in better touch with them now.

A memorable wedding moment

Tuesday's rehearsal was... well, it was almost funny. Hard to be funny on such a somber day. I'm still not certain what we're doing, but since our Fearless Leader doesn't even know what half the improv games are that we do (he always renames them something almost-completely unrelated), I figure we're all in good company with each other. Saturday should be fun.

Note to self: post flyers everywhere.

*sigh* The more things change, the more they remain the same.

I wonder where we're going... I always do, but it seems our velocity is much different now...

*hugs*
