Online Candlelight Vigils

for three nights now i've kept the candles "burning" while i slept, here on the couch in front of the computer...i've watched the number of candles grow from 234 to 468 to 831 to 948. this random tribute page automatically refreshes every thirty seconds. yesterday evening i scrolled through one to two hundred random tributes without seeing one of bekah's. i've taken to copying the victims' names then looking up their stories and oh, the stories i've read.

ten minutes after i am idle my screensaver kicks in. you know how it works...just now i woke up in time for the last five minutes of "White Nights," an old cold war era movie with a tearjerker ending; slightly awake and given to tears, i pushed the enter bar.

of 948 candles, bekah has five that i know of [thanks yndy!], three of which originated from this computer. when i pushed the enter bar upon sitting up this morning, this is what i saw on my computer screen:

it was not this...replaced photo 3-18-07 as i no longer have that graphics server.

love is indeed a many-splendoured thing. thank you bekah-la, you wonderful daughter of mine. amen

p.s. if this post appears twice it's because in my zeal to share this latest item in the bekah church of wonder catalogue of unexplained phenomena and amazing small world stories, i apparently went too fast for either my computer or one server or another...will rectify when things calm down. :)
