Rowing On The River

As I said previously, one of the things on my mind the morning of 9-11-2001 was what the weather was going to be on Saturday.

Well I was surprised when an e-mail I sent to the local Sierra Club chapter generated a reply of "Show Will Go On".

Over the days after 9-11 I began to, like most of the world, piece the events together. The process was, though, shaped by my own point of view. I first felt the chill of a new "Cold War" in hearing Bush's speeches (what did Iran, N. Korea, have physically to DO with 9-11). The fact that even NPR was going into "war mode" bugged me as well. In the back of mind I was thinking "I need to do SOMETHING".

Well the river clean-up gave me the time to think and drop outta the world for awhile. And I figured out what needed to be done--you're looking at it.
