One Day

One day maybe I
Won't have tears behind my shades
Walking home from work

nicely done, i'm a big fan of the haiku which are surprisingly hard to write given the syllabic limitations most usually follow... this one (i think) is even stronger without the picture (which i'm sorry to say i didn't recognize as one of the memorial designs for the WTC at first)...sounds like a melancholy sort of day down state...

take care.

Scotty,

Thanks for stopping by with your thoughts. I am still getting used to working downtown... on Wall Street with a new firm for 3 months now.

We used to live on West 12th Street on the Hudson River until we moved out here in October 2003. I still can't really write about September 11th, though given my career/network and living "south of 14th Street" at the time I'm amazed that I wasn't really close to anyone who died in the World Trade Center bombings.

Now as I pass Ground Zero twice a day on my way to and from the PATH train I can't help but wonder what happened to the ads/public service billboards they had on the subways with a number to call if you were still sad... weeks later, months later, but gone now.

I guess it is also a reminder to myself to keep things in perspective... a friend moving away or whatever blow the economy has dealt lately is nothing compared with "some gave all."

That's beautifully written. And felt.

Nice and emotional post. Even I hadn't made the 9/11 connection.

Cheers,
