Something cheery on a sad day
September 11 is always a troubling day for me on many levels - as a native New Yorker, as a peace-monger, as someone who can't see what progress has been made since that awful day . And now we have a government that is doing everything it can to bring about a recurrence.
My mother worked at One World Trade Center for many years, though fortunately she was retired by 2001, and I visited here there. I used to worry about her being on such a high floor - I think it was the 27th - in case of a power outage, but I never imagined what actually did happen.
So I thought I would choose something to lift spirits and headed down to 201 to photograph her September alcove display.
I did apply for a remote tutoring job yesterday. And the company that listed the position I was so interested in has put up another posting, this time requiring 5 writing samples. I hope I can put that together before the time runs out.
