Pandemic Pondering #532

Saturday 11th September 2021. I woke up this morning with a surprise realisation. It is 20 years since 9/11. Obviously there have been documentaries and news articles swirling around this week. The simple difference between how the U.S and the U.K write dates down in short form gives the annual anniversary a lack of specificity. Here the anniversary of 9/11 occurs on 11/9. This simple difference spins my head around. I have mild disnumerancy and have to work hard with numbers. Because of this 9/11 represents not just a day but a whole season of memories. 20 years ago I had just started University as a mature student studying Fine Art, something I should have done long before I became mature. I was creating digital art for established musicians and I was a busy working mother. I had no personal involvement with the events of 9/11. The consequences of it changed my life.
