last week in boston was in a word, surreal. the tragedy at the marathon was one thing, but then the man hunt that followed on thursday and friday was just about the most unreal thing i've ever experienced. the lives lost and those injured is just horrific to think about. personally, thankfully everyone i knew who was at the finish line of the marathon was at least a block away from the explosions. i'm so thankful for that. friday was probably one of the strangest day of my life. AJD and i couldn't go to work because the subway was completely shut down. we literally stayed locked in our apartment watching the news from about 7 am until the manhunt ended around 10 pm. i still haven't wrapped my head around the fact that it actually happened. it doesn't seem like real life. hopefully the one living suspect can shed some light on the reasoning behind this tragedy and that those directly affected feel some sort of closure.
tomorrow i'll get back to lighter subjects like clothes and food. you know, my two favorite topics.
