Had cousins in town today, and spent the afternoon with them.  We visited the WTC Memorial and I don’t know what I was expecting but I found it…..sterile.    Maybe once the buildings around it take shape and the trees grow beyond their current sapling height, it will exude a different vibe.    I caught myself still trying to visualize the Towers and the plaza between them, and craning my neck to see farther into the reflecting pools placed where the Towers once stood.   I left with a vague feeling of dissatisfaction and disappointment at that dissatisfaction.   Then again, maybe nothing can capture the magnitude of the place and what happened there.

Even so , I took a few photos.  This one is my favorite.
