After the horror of the September 11th attacks, I remember people asking when it would be "okay" to do certain things again -- okay to go on with Broadway shows, okay to have a party, okay even to laugh.
It seems to me that the best way to beat whatever darkness causes September 11ths and massacres in kindergartens, is to go on with our lives as quickly as possible. The darkness can't win.
But, it just doesn't feel right, yet, to post cute pictures of my dog-children.
It does feel right that it's raining today.
