If not now, when?

One American woman. Twenty acres and a 1650 farmhouse in Tuscany. Random introspection and hilarity, depending on the day.

11 September 2006

Because there are no words.



Because I was in Washington DC, steps away from the US Capitol.

Because that day is woven, forever, into the fiber of my being.

Because living it once was enough; I do not need to watch it again.

Because it was simultaneously five years, five minutes, and five lifetimes ago.

Because there are no words, and yet ... not enough words:

Moments of silence are insufficient, but they are all I have.

I remember.
