09/13/2004: "towers of light"
I saw the two beams of lazer light shooting up into the sky last night. With gilitters flying around in the light, it was stunning, and disturbing at the same time. Because it is a strong visual reminder. It makes you aware the exact location. It evokes our memory of the glowing light in the night sky from Ground Zero during the rescue effort. It was truly beautiful, though. Towers of light, I mean.
After running around the Central Park I took a ride to the park by Manhattan Bridge on the Brooklyn side and accidentally attended someone's outdoor wedding at dusk. It was so peaceful. All the accidental guests surrounded the ceremony applauded when the couple was announced as a husband and a wife.
