Thanks for asking, Shar =^)

Yes, just very very busy -- huge move at work that put me a day behind in a job where you can't be a day behind, plus I decided to take on some freelance ... not the best timing.

The Intruder never showed. Disappointment, I was spoiling for a fight. Did take lots of pictures (100+ ... gotta love a 2Gig card even with a digital SLR).

Took most of the day to realize this because all the remembering and gestures of all types keeps your focus there, but by the time I got to Union Square, expecting I dunno what but some sort of gathering ... it looked like any summer night instead. What I realized was that people had moved on with their lives. The college kids who were such a big thing at the remembrance night 5 years ago are all gone ... graduated, maybe working, maybe off to grad school. Or slackers hanging out on the steps in the Square's main plaza.

Sometimes the hardest thing about the trauma of an event like 9/11 is to realize that you survived it.

Unless you're still living in that moment. If you can call that living.
