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. richard
