100 Words Replay 17

It’s unnerving, to say the least, to remember a place you did visit, that’s no longer there. The disturbing thought that what was once real and solid and tangible has disappeared – that though your own feet stood on that floor and your own eyes marveled at the amazing panorama beyond those windows and you snapped photo after photo of the city of your dreams, the once defined space you briefly occupied is… gone – is unbelievable. The heartbreaking question as to why is unanswerable. The notion that had it been another time, you might have been there when, is unimaginable.

    I kind of know how that is. My parent’s house is no longer there anymore and I feel an ache every time I go past where it used to be. It seems so odd that it is no longer there.

      These were just some of the thoughts I had a few years ago when I was looking through the photos I took from the top of the World Trade Center.
