Shaw

"In your fear, seek only peace."

Nine years have come and gone. And we have our memories of the horror of that day. And we have the legacy of that day, which is not only our memories of the horror of that day, and our memories of those who died.

We have war in Afghanistan. We have war in Iraq. We have the Patriot Act. We have Islamophobia.

Everything has changed.
For in truth, it's the beginning of nothing,
And nothing has changed.
Everything has changed.
For in truth, it's the beginning of an end,
And nothing has changed.
And everything has changed. -- (David Bowie, "Sunday")

My piece for The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities has been coming along slowly. At the moment, it is entirely epistolary. I did 430 words on Thursday, and 1,092 yesterday.

We've begun a new round of eBay auctions. Please have a look. Thanks.

The weather has turned cool, but I probably mentioned that already.

Ramadan has ended. Eid al-Fitr is underway.
