That light shines up from downtown Manhattan. We all remember were we were and what we were doing when we found out what happened all those years ago.
Who were you with today and how did they make you feel?  Appreciate. Respect. Remember. Cherish. Hold. Love. Acknowledge. Embrace. Live.  
Fear is the end…don’t let that happen.

When I was a child, my mother used to make a pasta dish called ‘American Chop Suey’.  It is basically ground beef, onions, tomato sauce and a few other basic ingredients, whipped up with macaroni pasta.  I made it a little differently tonight with the addition of wine, a lot of fresh herbs and some cayenne for heat. It was still a one pot meal. #astoria #pasta #dinner #nostalgic #food
