It's rare that I'm struck dumb. Wordless. But lately, I just can't help watching the news. I'm waiting and wondering as is a good part of the world. We're just wondering what news will come from the middle east.

This game's been played for years, but this time it seems more real. Maybe it's a post-9/11 kind of thing, or maybe it's just Time.


Last night's fireworks were gorgeous, exploding like tinsel over the Atlantic ocean.

And I couldn't help but wonder what war sounds like. What happens when those sounds continue for weeks and don't signal a celebration?
