Weekends seem to be flying by at lightning speed lately. Two days really isn't enough time to wind down and relax. I did manage to get some me time on Friday with an evening CrossFit class followed by dinner and wine at a friend's house. Saturday was gorgeous and sunny and we spent a good deal of it outside. Lee experienced his first baby playgroup and now he knows where I learned all those wacky songs that I sing to Alice. And Sunday was spent having brunch with friends we hadn't seen in ages.
But there was a sadness I couldn't shake. A knot in my stomach I couldn't untie. News snippets. Radio stories. Talk amongst parents in baby group. All about that terrible tragedy that occurred on Friday. So unimaginable. So horrific.
There is an interesting article by film critic Roger Ebert about how there is this perception that violent movies play a key part in such tragedies. He disagrees. And I happen to agree with him. Rather than reiterate what he says, read the article and let me know you think.
