Remember September Mail Art Memorial

It's time again to participate in the Remember September Mail Art Memorial project if you are so inspired. 

The envelope above is the one I mailed last year.  This year, as we all know, is the 10th anniversary of that tragic day...September 11, 2001.  The TV shows about that day have been running for awhile now.  I have been enjoying one series on Discovery.  It's called Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero.  I like that it focuses on the present & future of Ground Zero, while still honoring the past.  I really had no idea how far they had come in the rebuilding.  It's comforting to know there will be both a memorial in the original footprint of the Twin Towers and new life returning to the site.

I've been focused on creating for the Humane Society fundraiser as well as doing my Charm A Day challenge...just completed Day 69 today!  But now my focus will change back to mail art for a bit while I create my Remember September Mail Art piece.  I'll mail it on Saturday, September 10th.  My seventh year of participating in this project.  Details and some archives of past projects are found in the link right under my 2010 envelope.

Honor the past...live for today...and look to the future.
