Twin towers

Sometimes I wonder if I dreamed it all. The world certainly doesn’t look the way I imagined it would in the anxious, gut-sick weeks that followed. I know people who think it was some kind of conspiracy. I know a lot of people who act like it never happened, or think that remembering it with horror and anger is an overreaction, and that whoever hijacked those planes had a reason that we can understand, or even sympathize with.

I don’t know who frightens me more.


PS. Rick is in need of a new scanner, if you can please hit his PayPal button

“AN APPEAL: This blog is celebrating its first anniversary, and hard use has taken its toll on my old HP scanner, which now only produces clear scans on a narrow strip on the right margin of its glass. I’m on the market for a new scanner, but the only comparable replacement costs several hundred dollars beyond my budget, so I’m asking anyone who’s enjoyed what I’ve been doing here – and wants to see more – if they can chip in and help. There’s a PayPal button up near the top, and anything would be appreciated. Also, if you feel moved, please click on my links – a small percentage of anything you buy helps fund this blog. Thank you so much in advance.”
