You Never Realize How Important Doing Normal Things Is

Having lived through the last six days, I can say that those were the worst six days of my life.  I thought after September 11, 2001, I would never live a week like that again, but it happened.  Except this time, it was a criminal (actually two) who were hitting very close to where I live.  Thankfully that is now over.

You never realize how important it is to do normal things until that is taken from you.  Last week, I tried to get back to normal.  Some people deal with adversity or difficult situations by locking themselves away.  I try to do the opposite.  I go out and I find people to do things with to get myself out there again.

I went with a group of friends to see the samurai exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts.  It was a perfect way to tear myself away from what was going on and to see some amazing samurai artifacts and costumes.

And to take some funny photos:

There they go marching by.  And some of the things they wore reminded me of high fashion.  Or what John Belushi would wear to fraternity party in Animal House:

It was a very well done exhibit:
