On 9/11/01, my world changed forever. My partner, Jonathan, died in the South Tower of the WTC.
This year, my anxiety re-emerges as I realize that this year, 9/11 is again a Tuesday. There are moments when I don't feel a need to watch any documentaries as often as I did in 2006, at the five year mark. A friend asked me how I would deal with this year, and, I honestly had not thought about that until they asked.
I am writing here again, because I shared a bit about Jonathan previously, and, now it comes up again, and I think of you. Jonathan would not want a long eulogy. We both always thought it was better to speak the kind words to the living. Again, I thank you for holding this space for those who mourn.
