Hi Lisa, it's the "anniversary" and I thought about you, so I just came to say hi and send you a warm hug. :)

(I'm on vacation next week and should resume posting, yay!)

Howdy Lisa - I too have been thinking of you. Is Bush's grovelling apology making you nauseus? The media coverage here is all poor black people living in FEMA trailers, the New Orleans spirit and the building of a muscians village. Not a whisper about insurance companies or other such things. They are showing more anger than triumph though.

..and as birthday season is upon us - an early Birthday greeting from the other side of the world!

Ah yes my Virgo compatriate -- you'll have to remind me when you have a birthday!

This is a simple but powerful post. Never occurred to me.

Thanks, Lisa, for being an important part of the experience I've had over the last year.

I thought about you and your community today, as I do on many day, but especially in light of Bush being in NOLA on the day of the anniversary unlike during the event when he blithfully ignored you all for so long.

Lisa, I did exactly that. I was tired from getting back late Monday night but I stayed awake until almost the end of Part 3 (I'd seen them the first time they broadcast). The other thing I did, which was perhaps even more powerful (at least in combination) was to read #1 - #16 "Top Katrina Posts" that Troy wrote immediately after the flood over at Gulfsails. It is all just so sad.

It was great to finally get to talk with you. I had a wonderful time this weekend. You guys sure know how to put on a conference! :D

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I love you all. Muse, I've missed you and am looking forward to your return.

And here's a long-overdue HAPPY BIRTHDAY wish for AOF and for Schroeder and any of my other Virgoan compatriots out there. (I'm really only a marginal Virgo, sitting comfortable on the Libra cusp.)
