reaching

Congratulations Brian on your top place. Such poignant but powerful images Brian that take my breath away. I had been to New York in 1990 and visited the twin towers and the terrible images of 9/11 remain in my mind. With kindest thoughts Ann xx

I too love "Georgia!" I forgot to mention that I was in NYC two weeks after 9/11 and literally stumbled onto the World Trade Center site - a sight I will never forget.
