 I , like so many other Americans watched in horror the events taking place that early morning in New york City.Washington DC, and finally a crash in rural Shanksville, PA. We sat glued to our televisions, mesmerized at the audacity of a terrorist attack taking place inside our borders,on American soil!
I had been on the phone with a friend at the local radio station when he said "is your TV on? if not , turn it on NOW".. and we continued to discuss the  atrocitiy taking place before our very eyes..in disbelief! I was still in my jammies and robe staring at the television when the evening news came on...
No , I've not forgotten a single moment of that day, nor those following, where our America pulled together, mourned  our dead, picked up the pieces and rallied together.. United as one..
Our lives changed that day..our innocence was lost..
but we still and will always .. remember..

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
