So I decided to kick this week off on a positive note. It’s good to be alive, good to feel good and healthy, good to have a great vacation to look forward to, and good to have a job. My gosh – the casualties of this recession are reeling in every walk of life. The calls that come in constantly – friends calling in favors – a friend was laid off, can you help? The DOW down another 300 points today. Wow, where will all this end? (a rhetorical question because no-one knows.) St. Philips is one of my favorite Charleston landmarks. This afternoon I was running an errand downtown, and it looked lovely in the afternoon light.
