A Moment of Silence
My guess is that these two women are sisters. Fun times in NYC.
It is hard to be fun and clever and witty when people you know are almost suffering. If you saw the news today, you know what is happening in Sonoma. Q has had to flee. When he wrote me that he was being evacuated, I thought, "Oh, this is just precautionary." Then I saw the picture of the entire subdivision burned to the ground. Wow. I've never seen the likes of that before. Q still can't go home. He says he doesn't know much about what happened in his neighborhood.
So I would feel bad being funny, clever, or witty today. This is like the moment of silence before some well-attended event.
It is difficult, though. When I had $60,000 worth of hurricane damage to my home, people just said, "Wow." I didn't make a big enough deal about it, I guess. My advice to Q: FEMA money. I think I passed up tens of thousands of dollars in aid out of ignorance and stupidity.
I really think those women are sisters, don't you?
