Too much sorrow

I was late for work for some reason. Erica was had the TV on and called me over. A plane had hit the towers. I knew people who worked there and I hoped that they were OK. As I watched the news another plane hit the other tower. Things would not be OK.

I went to work and I could see down the Hudson river on the Tappan Zee Bridge. There was a pillar of smoke rising. I watched the towers fall at my desk from an internet connection.

It was a very bad day, that I wish I could forget. I had to drive up to the Bear Mountain Bridge to cross the river on the trip back. There were houses with yellow ribbons around the trees by the time I drove home that night. There was so much sorrow and pain.

The clock radio woke me up this morning. I could not listen. There is too much emotion on this day to stand. I will pretend that I am somewhere else at another time and try not to remember. I will try not to think about it today.

It is too much.

 

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.

Enjoy!
