As i sit in my apartment in Greenwich Village in downtown NYC - reality hits. I hear a plane flying low overhead & then a minute later the Today show anoounces a plane has hit the WTC. I go the 150 feet to 6th avenue & with my neighbors watch in horror the evnts of 11 Septmeber 2001.
I was to sail tomorrow on QE2 to Europe. One of the great voyages I have repeated. A family friend & another ex co-worker are amoung the missing. I can't imagine sailing out of NY harbor in the condition the city / area is in.
For all that is lost - this love of ships & the sea - all of life is forever changed
