Wild Blackberry Fog

This image is from a while back, but the weather is about the same today - rain, fog, and maybe a little colder though. The light snow changed to rain last night and this morning all the roads are clear and it is a lot warmer than the last couple of days.

 

Today is a memorial service in Tucson for the victims of the shooting and the recovery of Congresswoman Giffords. President Obama will be attending. A friend of mine from New Mexico called to ask if she could park at my home which is near the venue there. I wish that I could attend but I am in Washington state at this time. It was nice to talk with her about the tragedy and the condition of the rhetoric in this country and its effect on the vulnerable and unstable.

I walked through the park after my visit to the Whitney Museum in NYC (that is where I saw the Friedlander show). The reminders of fall were everywhere still.

 

I got some sad news today. turns out the tragedy in Tucson hit closer to home than I first thought. My daughter went to school (a gifted high school) with Gabe Zimmerman who died in the shooting and I met him through her on occasions. I did not make the connection till she called me and told me of this. He was 30 years old, the same age as my daughter.
