I was just browsing around and came across this site, with a nice video of the New World Trade Center.
To me it speaks to the importance of perseverance and hope in the face of tragedy.

One of the nice things about living in Toronto is that our library is pretty much second to none. It’s amazing what a relatively small city like Toronto has in its public library holdings. Speaking of which, I’m now watching BBC’s Wonders of the Solar System, and so far it’s pretty good.
I just finished part one, Empire of the Sun, which touches on some interesting points that I was only dimly aware of—for instance, the retrograde motion of Mars is explained very well.
There’s also some good footage of India during a solar eclipse. And the footage of the northern lights from the arctic circle is outstanding. No need to go there. Just watch this.
Perhaps I’ll report more as I plow through the series.

Interesting student video of Bowie’s Telling Lies. I don’t think Bowie did a video for this song. There’s another video at YouTube that’s a sort of remix of other Bowie footage, and *very* ugly as all lies and liars are. But this one isn’t quite so harsh. I like its ambiguity.

I had the strangest dream last night. I was caught in some kind of time loop and back in the 1950s. I knew all the people there and that I’d have significant life experiences with them. But they didn’t know that. Funny thing is, I was born in 1962.
So then I’m talking to my brother on the telephone. He answers my call with his name. I tell him who I am but he doesn’t know me at all. It was like I’d looped back to some kind of parallel reality. Another universe. But somehow my going back worked out a whole bunch of issues that needed to be resolved. All very strange. Would have made a good sci-fi story.

Sometimes we think we’ve found our heart of gold and it turns out to be pyrite.
This is an amazing song. One of those songs that captures important moments and feelings in my life, a song that I can always come back to whenever unexpected stumbling blocks get me down. And yes, sooner or later it all gets real… walk on.
