Weathered

Weathered Barn along a Country Road in Western Pennsyvlania

Weathered.

The stories this weathered barn
could tell
are likely
more than we can imagine.

Much like the lines
on beautiful, weathered faces
we appreciate so much…
(until they are our own).

On a day like September 11th,
which in the U.S. has become known as 911,
we cherish weathered barns
and weathered faces.

Remembering and honoring those
who didn’t survive
the opportunity
to grow to become weathered.

Cherish the moments.

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi

  1. Well said Jodi. I lost friends in 911. The were 3 of 30 classmates of mine from my specialized MBA program sponsored by Dep of Def out of Syracuse. All were stationed out of the Pentagon in the part of the building were I worked just 10 years earlier. They were in the wrong place at the wrong time and one of them I just saw a month prior to this who was so happy to show me their new baby girl. So sad. Often think of these 3 souls who went too soon.
