With a nod to JL and her memoir about hearing her mom was ill. Whenever something huge happens like 911 or something enormous happens in my own life, like the death of my father I get this odd sensation. The world or my world has changed dramatically and irrevocably and yet the sun comes up just as did the day before and will until the end of time. How can everything feel so different and look exactly the same as it did?
