Although I will not be at Daddy tonight, I wanted to let everyone know how happy I am there will be a place to go. I hope you all gather, show your love and raise a lot of money for the Red Cross. I had to get out of my neighborhood, (I live on 25th and 1st next to Bellevue) the site of one more desperate family member clinging to a photo and looking so helpless was more than I could handle. My block became one of the saddest sites I have ever witnessed. Words can't express how overwelmed I...

Father Mychal Judge, the NYC Fire Department Chaplain who perished, along with many others in that first wave of emergency response to "Ground Zero, was an openly gay priest, a fact the media seems to have "overlooked." [This message was edited by hatches on 09-15-01 at 04:49 PM.]

I began my annual remembrance tonight, watching the incredible docko "The Falling Man" - was finally on the Discovery Times channel. IMHO the best film piece yet on 9/11 - NOT for the faint of heart, as it focuses on those who jumped, including the famous - and quickly supressed - photo of the man falling to his death. In the morning Nova and I will go around the corner to leave flowers at the firehouse on East 13 Street. Those 12 plaques on the building are as close to Ground Zero as I need...

This morning I woke up late for work and rushed to get ready, forgetting that today was 9/11. Looking in the bottom drawer for a note pad that I wanted to use at the office, I pulled out Time magazine 9/11/06 with the cover shot of the towers collapsing and thought how odd to pull this out of nowhere and on the anniversary of that dreadful day. I still think of all those beautiful and brave firemen who died and it brings tears to my eyes even now.

Walking home from a big poetry night at St. Marks Church, the tribute in light was on, and I thought once again of that morning now eight years ago. This year in remembrance, I have featured the topic from that morning and the days that followed - it will stay on top of this forum till the weekend, then go back to its permanent home in Best of the Motherboards. http://motherboards.infopop.cc...6060101/m/5516048701

Last night as I have done for the past eight years I left two dozen roses and a note under the memorial plaques naming the six lost firefighters on the front of the firehouse at the end of the block. The roses were there with several other offerings. This year, the firefighters took the roses and the note inside. There is a zone in me still lingering ungrounded, after years we still do not know where this will have us collectively end up.

Been away from the boards for quite awhile but never stopped missing many here. anyway... It has always bothered me that wars always start within a small community of fanatics & blows up into killing innocent people with NO affiliation to ideas of said fanatics. Be them church or state sponsered ect. what ends up happening everytime ... the waring parties get tired of the bloodshed & make up again without concern of all the missing fathers/children/ families, hopes & dreams lost.

Hope you all are alive and well this morning, that's all I have to say. I wrote a few haikus about 9/11 in my journal, and a long rant about Bush and the war on terror and the fact that Bush was starting to regret the war in Iraq. I read it when I "finished" it and thought --Damn that's harsh--and I wish that we all could stop mourning and start living life again. For some of us it's easier sad than done. It still pisses me off, what happened that day, and what happened since then. And you...

Strangely enough, I was awake, heard the initial explosion and a woman screaming hysterically on the street. And then the emergency vehicles. I got dressed and went downstairs and was crossing the street when the second plane hit. People were walking north with blood-splattered faces, their clothing shredded. Now, the silence down here is positively eerie, punctuated by the occasional siren, the drone of bombers overhead.

All the hospitals are on alert. I am not allowed to leave. The chairs have been moved about in the patient waiting areas, so that hallways are lined with chairs.

The update on donating blood- They do need blood but cannot process and screen any more till tomorrow. They will need blood tomorrow, and the next day, etc. Some nearby collection points- Metlife at 5th and 23rd Bellevue hospital. I don't think they want people at St. Vincent's though. LOTS of stores here are closed - an average of two stores open on every block.

The actress and photographer, Berry Berenson, also the sister of Marisa Berenson and the widow of Anthony Perkins, was unfortunately on Flt 11 that was the second plane to hit the WTC. She was a very talented and beautiful person. I met her several times and found her to be a wonderful and kind person. I am sure that she will much missed by her friends and fans and family.

Contrary to previous reports, TriBeCa is not particularly in shambles; most of the devastation seems to be confined to an area south of Chambers Street. I did hear that the huge antenna that used to top WTC is impaled straight into the ground. I wonder if it's true; very Planet Of The Apes. Canal Street seems to be a huge holding pen for earth-moving equipment. Cranes and flatbed trucks with concrete barriers on them are parked outside my window.

Together we weave Magical and truly beautiful Art. A Tapestry that is continuously Woven. We are threads of different colours. Some threads be shinier or darker hued. Flecks of gold and silver run through it. We weave this together. We weave the tapestry in revelry and happiness. Brought together together with all the pains and disappointments. We are healed by the weft that is the common experience. Suddenly, this fabric of our shared consciousness is raveled. The Tapestry becomes frayed.
