On the Waterfront

Tomorrow I go back to school. I went with my twin and her husband and baby to a place along the waterfront, down in Jersey City.

It doesn't seem real, my old life now. I am such a different person. I pick up my pen, and think of writing, but this is the first thing I have in a year.

There was a storm. I was in it.

There was an accident. I was in it.

The WTC is now the Freedom Tower.

It is so much to put in a five word sentence.

I have almost graduated.

These are things you will never realize when I walk in a room, shake your hand, smile, and say, "Hi, I'm Jessica."

Or maybe you will, because you read this.
