Good Mourning Widows!
Joy to you and me.
It is a new day in New York, 20 miles north of where The World Trade Center used to be.
Marigolds, geraniums, and vinca vines bristle in a breeze outside my office window. If I crane my neck to the left and tilt my head back, my eyes can see the dot of an airplane in the distant turquoise sky. The air is crisp as a cracker and I am filled with mourning joy.
Today we honor famous widow, Dana Reeves, wife of Christopher.
Dana was an actress. After Christopher was paralyzed, as a result of a horseback riding accident, she became an advocate for the disabled. Among Dana's winning attributes was her smile.
After we remember Him, let's show our teeth -- And smile.
How does it feel? Can you describe it? Look in a mirror. What do you see?
Now pick up a pen -- And write.
Go ahead. I dare you.
Q: What driver doesn't have a license?
A: A screwdriver.
Have a joyful day! And remember, we're not alone.
