wisps of freshly discovered thoughts

Going to the gynecologist tomorrow and really annoyed that sex ed did not teach me how to mentally prepare for someone sticking their hands and tools up my vagina.
That’s part of a very long list of topics sex ed missed completely or completely missed the point of. Lol.

The stars don’t align like they used to
As a child, I looked for answers that were beautiful
And true
But now I’m much older than I thought I would be
And I know that what I’ve done won’t define me
The trees are taller now than when I left them
My daddy has a bald spot on the top of his head
My mum is in the garden on her hands and her knees
Singing “lordy, won’t you take care of my baby, please”

Today is the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. I took this photo a few days after the bombing. I was at the Memorial at Copley Square, just steps away from the bomb sites. Adults and children from all over left their running shoes with messages of love and support for the victims, their families, and for the City. Many of these remembrances are now on view at the Boston Public Library. (iPhone)

AP PHOTOS: AP revisits Boston bombing sites


Life has resumed on the streets of Boston.

A year after three people were killed and more than 260 injured when two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, the city’s landscape bears few reminders of the explosions, or the ensuing manhunt for suspects that ended with the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Watertown.

On Boylston Street, the chaos and pain of that day have been replaced by the regular routines of pedestrians and drivers. Businesses are open, including the Forum restaurant, badly damaged when one bomb exploded directly outside.

This week, barricades and a viewing stand are set up near the finish line for this year’s marathon, set for Monday.

Just down the street, Copley Square became home to a spontaneous memorial. The items, including running shoes and messages, were removed in June. Some are now on view in an exhibit across the street at the Boston Public Library.

A few days after the bombing, Tsarnaev eluded capture after a gunbattle with police. Residents of Boston and surrounding communities were told to stay indoors while police went house to house searching for him. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died following the shootout with police.

Today, those neighborhoods are quiet again. (AP)

These are the mementos left behind at an impromptu memorial built at the site of the 2013 bombing attack on the Boston Marathon, which killed three people and injured 264 at the race’s crowded finish line.

The makeshift shrine began in the days after the April 15 attack, as visitors and residents left tributes along barricades erected by the police.

Next week, several hundred of the items, including flags, teddy bears, t-shirts and trainers, will be displayed at the city’s Copley Square until May 11, 2014.
