Words fail me.

The recent events in Manchester are numbing.
Words fail. 
Efforts of comfort appear incredibly hollow.

Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk. William Arthur Ward

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. Rabindranath Tagore

Sometimes words do fail, I hope those affected know the world is thinking of them. I wish we had stronger, smarter and more eloquent representation to express that to the people of Manchester and GB. Beautiful shots, the black and white ignites the imagination, I see a tornado. The top photo is especially poignant.

Your images, the quotes, and the deep feeling behind them, resonate with my thoughts exactly. Numbed. And beautiful here, sharing your big heart in such a wonderful way.

Yes it was such a terrible tragedy! It seems like every month brings something new that we all must deal with. The world is a scary place sometimes.

PS -- thanks for your Gypsy visits and comments. And yes, both Molly and Baby Grand survived the first day back at work -- and those since!
