Celebrating a Year

11.13a.15Sorting and culling old memories and belongings in the attic again this morning, and as I’m about to leave to meet friends for dinner and later to hear P’s band play, I get the early reports of the Paris terrorist murders. The events unfolding are in the neighborhood where my son and his Parisian wife live, although they have now relocated to Texas for a year for work, much to my present relief. I touch base with them to be sure H’s family are accounted for (they are), and they are reeling in shock at the news of devastation in places so familiar, often frequented. My mind bifurcates, half enjoying the evening’s sushi and music, the other half trying to reconcile this news of brutality, random and unprovoked. How can these people, these actions belong in my world?
