The embers dimmed, the shadows gaped wide their maws. The trees whispered amongst themselves. 'twas now the very witching hour, the wee hours of the fairy folk!
Remembrances of September 11th
A chilling thought I had just today was that 75,000 rather than 3,000 could easily have been murdered if the attacks happened later in the day. The attacks instead commenced at 8:46, before the typical 9 to 5 workday.
I have the feeling that 9/11 will go the way of Pearl Harbor and become largely forgotten, at least in the national consciousness. In 2021, a mere ten years from now, it will have faded significantly. I know I will not forget. I cannot. Let us never forget.
The Behemoths' War and its Consequence
I wrote this having no intimate knowledge of any creation myth. Part of my goal was to see how it matches up with other such myths. I was exposed to an ancient Greek creation myth way back in 6th grade and even now remnants of that myth may have found their way into my story, though I undoubtedly forgot virtually everything. The keen reader will also notice biblical allusions. The reason I added that to an utterly false myth is simple: it's hard to separate the Bible from my thinking.
I realized some of you may have been wondering what I was thinking when I wrote one particular line in this piece of poetic prose. It goes "Her bosom seemed tender as two fawns." Well, believe it or not, I stole it from a bible verse, two in fact (Song of Solomon 4:5 and Song of Solomon 7:3) More of my biblical allusions at work.
