Well. Here we are the day after 9/11. How to be light and airy on a blog, I ask? Well... it came to me as I walked up our street and saw the Statue of Liberty framed between buildings and flags... I do what I do every day... because I can. That has been my motto since my first ferry ride back to work in Manhattan after that fateful day. Because I can. So here I sit, with my unfinished "Patriot Gang" of saluting kids. I'm ready to seize the day and be lighthearted, ready to snip, snip here, snip, snip there and offer a couple of tra la la's... because I can.
