Another week in Alabama and the weather could not have been more perfect. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the weekend, as well as, take in some FOOTBALL. Fall like temperatures and college football, it just does not get any better than that.

This weekend was a very special weekend with the tenth anniversary of 911. For most of us, we have a firm vision on where we were and what we were doing on that horrific morning. I was backpacking in the southern sierras and was unaware of the event until I hiked out the following Friday. It was a very revealing moment to come face to face with the imagery of the event, even more so 5 days after the fact. The good news is, as a nation we have moved on but always with a thought of remembrance for those that perished that day, as well as, for those that have fought the battle to maintain our way of life and our freedoms. It is impossible to think about that day without seeing the imagery of the moment and all the images that followed from the liberation of Iraq. Hopefully we are a stronger and a more resilient nation.

While teaching at a workshop in Chicago, a group of us ventured in to Gary, IN to a place of esteem reverence and notoriety. It is the remains of the once glorious City Methodist Church built in 1926 at an expense of over 1 million dollars. The vacated church was heavily damaged by fire in 1997 and has been left as is with its future in question. Most who visit the church today do so with camera in hand, looking to capture the majestic beauty of its current state of decay. Standing in the sanctuary and looking at the architecture, you could not help but hear the angelic voices of praise that once filled the hall. With all the decay brought on my weather and vandals, she still stands tall and proud awaiting what destiny has in store.
