before i put on my makeup
i say a little prayer
lyrics from aretha franklin's i say a little prayer
these last days much has been going on to touch the heart. i wanted to post some days ago but the time seem to get away from me. my heart would break with the news of what was/is going on between the israelis and the palestianians. i'm deeply grateful for a 'cease fire.' i hope surprisingly it will be forever. i know that seems incredibly unrealistic but we must at least start with a dream followed of course by all the necessary efforts. a great man did once say... i have a dream...
yesterday, well, since friday there have been ceremonies for the inauguration of barack obama. so hopefully we can get back on track, each one of us doing our part.
i so often walk by the hudson river. it's a nice little reprieve from the busyness of the city. as i don't know how to swim (i know! gotta do something about that) i have wondered what if i fell in. i hope to never have this happen. i wondered how long one could last in that water. well, on the day of the plane going down in the hudson, with those temperatures that day, experts say about half an hour. only.
i do love it when things seem to work out alright...
