Wall Street bombing of Sep 16, 1920

Here in Raleigh NC today it’s peaceful and quiet after a happy wedding with a well-timed monarch butterfly flitting behind the bride to land on a tree just over the couple as the rings were being blessed Saturday.

Plus, Friday late afternoon as we approached the city, a rainbow appeared – the first I’d seen in years. Seemed like a wonderful portent for a new marriage with butterfly soon to follow. And a singing bowl as part of the ceremony was a calming touch!

(Maybe I should send a few to Washington or to the over-reactive candidate McCain. ‘Oming’ may be the one thing Mr. Moon-Pluto opposition hasn’t tried.)

Finding Raleigh a-vroom with a biker convention of some sort (something to do with singer Ray Price – sorry I didn’t get more details but the wedding was uppermost) the charming old city was a hub of activity with its festival atmosphere and deep-fried cheese cake on a stick. No kiddin’…I thought it sounded awful, too.

My favorite dish at the reception had to be the Butternut Squash Lasagne which was amazing.

And although I said that politics would not be on my agenda this weekend, you know that I did manage to find a TV long enough to know that McCain showed up to debate Friday night, and I heard some of the post-debate punditry, too. Obama won, as I, and perhaps John McCain, expected. And some of the bailout info got through the wedding cake haze. Seems that Washington is desperate to affect Asians markets before their opening on Monday.

Using a laptop at the moment is driving me batty so I’ll simply close with a previously saved link I had intended to post day-of concerning the still-visible damage to the JP Morgan building by an anarchist bomb the anniversary for which was earlier in September while the current kerfluffle was in full sway.

We have a financial bomb of our own now so the timing seemed interesting to me. There are no rainbows or butterflies involved, but if you’re in a bailout kind of mood, you may find it of note:

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
