September 11, 2001: Remembering (Part 1)


I’m not from New York, but I live here now. Have lived here since January 2001 and was here on September 11th. I was sick that day, home from work and sitting at the computer (was I really sick? heh heh) and checking email and all of a sudden people starting writing me asking if I was okay. Didn’t know what they were talking about, didn’t have a T.V. I turned on my radio and found an a.m. station and wound up hearing the live broadcast of the second Tower.

I was living in a basement apartment at the time and my landlady who lived upstairs and worked in downtown Brooklyn walked home over the Brooklyn Bridge and brought a co-worker with her who couldn’t get home, or maybe she was a stranger. I don’t remember. What was interesting was that my landlady was Orthodox Jewish and the stranger was Mormon and we had a little teatime about religion. Was a distraction from the day.

I’ve written about this before, in other places, but one of the things that I remember the most was the smell underground, meaning that there were subway stations that had to be bypassed but still we went through the tunnel of course and the smell… I don’t know how to describe it. And going so so so so so slowly through those sections. So eerie. I mean because on a good day the trains move at a decent pace but through downtown Manhattan those months? I don’t have the words. We were traveling through hell.

I never did look up the astrology of that day although I know it’s all over the Web and I think in my astrology class my teacher went over it once or twice.

I do remember though that it was a beautiful morning, weather-wise, and it was the time of year before Rosh Hashanah, the start of the Jewish High Holidays when special prayers are said in the morning at shul (synogogue).
