When it rains in the desert, all the unexpected creatures make an appearance -- including nearly see-through snails.

If you look closely, you can see the hummingbird in the upper right hand corner, waiting for me to move away from the feeder behind me. The hummingbirds are always surprisingly loud. HUMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmm.

We Remember

Today, we gather to be reassured that God hears the lamenting and bitter weeping of Mother America because so many of her children are no more. Let us now seek that assurance in prayer for the healing of our grief stricken hearts, for the souls and sacred memory of those who have been lost. Let us also pray for divine wisdom as our leaders consider the necessary actions for national security, wisdom of the grace of God that as we act, we not become the evil we deplore. - Reverend Nathan Baxter, Dean of Washington National Cathedral, September 14, 2001
