On September 11, 2016, I am remembering so much, including:
- 9/11/01, when I was in a park on a Tuesday with my three-year-old son Aaron, not knowing how I was going to explain to him what had just happened to our country.
- Witnessing my now eighteen-year-old son Aaron going through intense security systems at Boston’s Logan Airport, yesterday, as he left our country for his college experience in Edinburgh, Scotland.
- Spending yesterday evening with my beautiful friend Barbara in beautiful Boston, where we attended a performance of Stephen Sondheim‘s Sunday in the Park with George.
Here are some images I’m remembering from yesterday:
I’m remembering that the song I find most moving from Sunday in the Park with George is “Move On.”
As I am moved by “Move On,” I am also remembering these two things:
- I saw the very memorable Bernadette Peters and Mandy Patinkin in the original production of Sunday in the Park with George.
- Yesterday, at a toll both outside of Logan Airport, I told the toll collector I had just sent my son off on a plane to college. She replied, with feeling, “He is missing you as much as you are missing him,” which I love remembering.
What are you remembering, here and now?
I am remembering to thank all who helped me create this post and you — of course! — for remembering to visit this blog, today.
