9/11 Memorial_Can Everything You See Be Beautiful?

There is so much resilience and creativity in the human spirit; in its ability to achieve and create beauty out of chaos.  
Seeing some of the pictures of the 9/11 memorial made me think of this quote by Otto Dix that I read while viewing his painting Die Skatspieler in Berlin.
He said:  "I'm not that obsessed with making representations of ugliness. Everything I've seen is beautiful."
Looking toward and thinking of you New York this week and in a way, always.
