170. All the awkward silences and even more awkward condolences...
that fill the blogosphere, the phone lines, the cafes, the bus stops around the world today seem wholly necessary. The teeming trauma pervades, and yet, there is so much more going unsaid, unwritten, at least in most circles. I won't go into that today, as the time will soon come when today's grief will have to give way to new sight into the grief of others, into joining the grief of those we have become numb toward, or never felt grief toward, at least not in the way we do today. I am lucky. My friends in London are physically fine, though not untouched by today's attacks, and one might presume. But I admit my own complicity in knowing grief more wholly today than on other days, when the difference shouldn't exist.
