Fiat Lux

It's Latin for 'Let there be Light'

I Have No Green Thumb


I haven’t anything resembling a green thumb. Luckily, the roses on our patio seem to thrive on neglect and are blooming despite my inattention.

On a related note, I’m thinking about getting a monitor or possibly also a Mac Mini for photo editing at home. I love my laptop but a 13″ screen doesn’t do Lightroom justice.

Osama Bin Laden – Dead

rot in hell Osama

New York Times, May 2, 2011

I have deep, mixed emotions tonight. The torah tells us that we should not rejoice at the death of our enemies, but I cannot help being happy that this man who brought death and misery to so many, is finally dead.

It won’t bring back Kath or any of the others that Al Qaeda has killed over the years. It won’t bring the World Trade Center back. And it won’t stop terrorism.

But still, I wish so badly that I were in NYC tonight so that I could celebrate.
