Greetings, friends.

Forgive me, but today, as a native New Yorker, I find it difficult to write a substantive post.  So I shall share with you instead two photographs.

This is how I will always remember the World Trade Center:

And this is our home.  The only one we have.  Here's hoping we can find a way to live in it together.

If you are in the area, please do come join us at the Virginia Living Museum this Saturday for our monthly Star Party and Laser Light Night.  We're hoping for fine weather so we can really enjoy the sky.

Until next time,
Carpe Noctem,
