Dear Daralee--sorry to have been
so out of touch, but we had a
friend from New York with us last
week. I felt he needed all our
attention and support. He was on
a subway train on Sept 11 just
off to the side of the Towers
when one of them collapsed or was
hit. The car filled up with
smoke. Passengers could not see.
Finally they were led off the
train, down the tracks to a place
where they could surface. When
they came up, they saw and heard
for the first time what was
happening. He had to walk to a
friend's apartment up near
Columbia University--about ten
hours of walking.
I also hurt my darn back cleaning
up after the concert and
preparing for our friend's visit.
So I creep around with a cane to
hold me up. I hope you are faring
better! Incidentally, he liked
your Poets Tree site. He is a
talented poet. Anyway, there you
have it, me at my weakest. Have a
nice, warm, windy weekend.
