yesterday morning 6 people died here in town, before most people were awake. a mother, 4 children and an apparently very distraught father. the details are still coming out, but it appears that the dad killed his wife & 4 adopted children before trying to bring about his own demise. he finally succeeded by driving the family van into a bridge pylon. this was after being released a month ago on bail for embezzlement & money laundering charges.
why? why do people have to bring innocents with them? you may have screwed up your life & felt you couldn't go on. perhaps you thought your family wouldn't have to deal with the 'embarrassment'. but what about your parents? your wife's parents? your neighbors? your friends? the entire community? you can't take them all with you.
i just don't understand. my sympathies are with everyone who knew the family & trying to cope with the loss.

nyc circa feb 26

okay, here's my much-anticipated bloggings on my trip. (ha!)
after a delayed arrival in nyc, mum & i grabbed a cab from lga into the city. i called suzanne on the way to let her know that i'd made it. we finally got to her place (very nice, hugely spacious apartment) wherein i saw the purple chairs & met the infamous tycho.
even though it was sprinkling, mum & i were down for a brief walking tour. with her close proximity to the natural history museum, we spied this bizarre statue of tr out front. i couldn't find any close-ups, but a mounted tr is flanked by an indian and what appears to be a naked 'negro', as my mother said. not sure of the significance. did you ever find out, suzanne?
anyway, after passing that bit of interesting culture, we ducked into central park to see the john lennon imagine memorial, then figured out a place to eat. yummy bagel, lox & fake cream cheese for me, while suz & mum had pastrami. thanks for dinner! brief detour to a cupcake place to grab some snackies for breakfast, we headed back to suzanne's. met hubby, then suzanne kindly guided us to the subway and airtrain back to jfk & we snagged a shuttle to the hotel for our 8am flight the next morning. more to come later.
also, is that dismantled piano still sitting outside your apartment?
