Connections

Sometimes, it takes a day or so to let feelings really settle. I was fine yesterday morning, until I learned that the movie theater where the shooting took place is the one where we take Honeybear's mom. I was pretty much in shock the rest of the day... I'd just been there! All the sense memories of the theater rose up, now with fear and horror superimposed, and I totally shut down. This morning, Honeybear and I crafted a blog post for his new business blog about our reactions, and how important connection is.

There was another post planned for today. But in light of what happened early Friday morning in Aurora, I couldn't bring myself to post a lighthearted, perky sales article. Later that day, I had lunch with one of the firefighters who had responded at the scene. He provided the human detail that news coverage never does --

Still kinda shocky. Having dinner this weekend with Honeybear's sister, who works as a patient advocate at the hospital where many of the victims were taken. Will drive past theater to get there. It's really kind of amazing -- or maybe it isn't -- how many ripples a single event can have.
