A week before 9/11, I thought I'd share this song, "Dark Winter," written and performed by Ellie Avishai. Ellie was an aspiring singer, song-writer in 2001 and wrote "Dark Winter," almost in one sitting, during the week following the attack. Performing one's music is an aspiration one never really gives up (she'll be releasing her first CD this fall), but she is now also an MBA with designs on reforming high-school education. In case this isn't obvious, Ellie is my daughter, now 31, and making her way in the world as she knows it. And in case this isn't obvious, I love the sound of her voice.
