9/11 Memorial Pool In The Morning Light ...


“No day shall erase you from the memory of time.”
                      ~Virgil
                  ~ 70 B.C. - 19 B.C.
People gather around the 9/11 Memorial Pool on a beautiful April morning in Lower Manhattan in New York City.

The Virgil quote has been fashioned out of salvaged remnants of damaged World Trade Center steel and is located in Memorial Hall inside the nearby National September 11 Memorial Museum, where it will stand in perpetuity at the site of the September 11, 2001 attacks as a promise that we will never forget those taken from us on that terrible day.

Touched By The Morning Dew ...


“Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar.”
                    ~ Bradley Millar
A Woolly Bear caterpillar – larvae of the Isabella Tiger Moth – is touched with the morning dew on a beautiful late October day at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

In describing the legend of the Woolly Bear caterpillar predicting the severity of the coming winter, The Old Farmer’s Almanac states the Woolly Bear caterpillar has 13 distinct segments of either rusty brown or black. The wider the rusty brown sections (or the more brown segments there are), the milder the coming winter will be. The more black there is, the more severe the winter.
