(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: At the Flight 93 National Memorial: All That They Left Behind

With family in town for several days, we took a little road trip out to the rural-most parts of Pennsylvania on Sunday afternoon, to pay our respects at the Flight 93 National Memorial. 

It was my second time visiting, but the first for the rest of the family. Two things struck me this time: the hot wind blowing over the hills from whence the plane came on its fated path, and the particular mementos that were left tucked in the overhead compartment-like shelf overlooking the final crash sight.

Wristbands. Flowers. Coins (for In God We Trust?) 

And these, stories left behind with them all.

The most poignant one, to me:

“And I know it aches

And your heart, it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on
Leave it behind
You’ve got to leave it behind
All that you fashion, all that you make
All that you build, all that you break
All that you measure, all that you feel
All this you can leave behind
All that you reason, all that you care
(It’s only time and I’ll never fill up all my mind)
All that you sense, all that you scheme
All you dress up, and all that you see
All you create, all that you wreck
All that you hate.” 
“Walk On” ~ U2

Wordless Wednesday: The Very Definition of Wordless, In My Book

In the spirit of BEA (and not being there this week), I give you my saddest book related photo ever. Forgive the quality, as this was taken by me with my cell phone yesterday as I sat at a red light. (Truly, my car was not moving.)

Wordless Wednesday: Reflections

We are coming up on the one year anniversary of our move to Pittsburgh (well, The Husband’s one year anniversary of his move to Pittsburgh; me and the kids would follow five months later).

For this Wordless Wednesday, I thought it would only be appropriate to include some photos that I snapped today (very quickly) of a spot in our new city that always takes my breath away whenever I’m downtown.

(That should probably be pronounced DAHN-TAHN.)

Outdoor skating rink at PPG Place in Pittsburgh, PA 
PPG Place buildings. 

Breathtaking.  Every. Single. Time.

(I’ve never skated here. Yet.  That’s on my Pittsburgh Bucket List of Things to Do.)

Wordless Wednesday: All Was Calm, All Was Bright

One of my favorite pictures from this Christmas season.  Betty, by the tree at my mom and stepfather’s house.

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Pass the Hand Sanitizer, Please.

Remember yesterday when I told yinz about our visit to the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens here in the ‘Burgh?  Well, one of the first things greeting us in the main lobby was this pretty cool piece of artwork, designed to encourage people to think about how to better conserve the Earth’s resources.

(That’s my Boo in the gray sweatshirt.  A Philadelphia Eagles sweatshirt, worn inside out, “so nobody can tell I am an Eagles fan” here in the heart of Steelers Nation.)

Anyway.  If you look closely, you will see that the railing is adorned with notes from various Phipps visitors with resolutions, promises, hopes and dreams for the Earth ….

This one was my favorite, by far. 

Advice to Carolyn: 
With friends like Jade, you might want to keep 
the hand sanitizer in close proximity.  
I’m just sayin’.
