I never imagined hours later that our world's would be turned (slightly) upside down. The big freelance job I was suppose to begin that Tuesday -- I hate, hate, hate working on Mondays -- would be postponed and really destroyed. My confidence still hasn't recovered and I am only now beginning to feel confident and capable of constructive work.

I had so much that I wanted to write about regarding 9/11, but feel that it's best if I not continue. We're all going to be inudated with the images and horror stories and of course, the jingoism as Dubya et al push for an invasion of Iraq.

Wish I would have taken photos of the Peace Rally in Washington Square Park earlier today. While I wasn't too impressed with the tired speeches and the numerous handouts from communists, anarchists and peaceniks, the atmosphere was filled generous sharing and positive energy.

Let's hope it continues.

And since it's now Sept. 11th: Happy 2nd Anniversary, Baby!
