Onward and upward

at attention

The edginess has dissipated. I feel better at this moment than I've felt for the last couple days. However, my feelings (today and then) about what happened a year ago, still do not make it into words.

There was a memorial today on the grounds of the Illinois State Capitol Building. It's about six blocks from my office. I didn't attend, but listened to most of it on the radio. Among the many speakers were the mayor and the governor. Not much else to report on that front.

Every time I went outside, I found myself looking up at the sky. It was blue and cloud free and beautiful.

I'm not usually a flag waver, but I liked the above photo I shot last Veteran's Day at the Illinois Vietnam War Memorial and the Illinois Korean War Memorial.
