Sunday September 11, 2005: Personal: Katrina and 9-11

           I've been wrapped up in the unfolding turmoil left by Hurricane Katrina, and --up until now-- have made no mention in a journal entry of the event or my reaction to the news reports. I kept hoping the right words would come to me eventually.  Despite the continuing discussions, my obvious interest in the short and long term problems, and my compulsion for repeated donations, I've found myself unable to sit down and actually write a relevant comment or observation for the blog.

        Today is the anniversary of September 11th and I find the same writer's block.  It seems strange to me: my silence does not come from being jaded or unconcerned; I have not suffered a loss of compassion, but find my heart as open and grieving as ever.  I just can't think of any written words that would add anything meaningful to either subject.  Perhaps for now it's best for me to simply sit with my emotions.

Silence often says more than words... especially when just being there is enough.
