In the tragedy that ensued on Tuesday, September 11, 2001,
Eight Children died - all were onboard planes;
Our Children did not start this,
They had no choice in their fate - it was decided by others;
Yet, for that reason and no other, those children were forever lost;
And in that moment, On that day...
The "child" was taken from all of us.
[This marks the end of my series entitled "Contemplation"]

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
