I ran out of surf wax…


…I went into Ericeira surf shop and saw this image on the TV.

This photograph was taken by Richard Drew at 9.41 am on September the 11th 2001.

I didn’t surf today.


  1. At the time one thing that struck me was how I could have been plodding along for weeks, blissfully unaware of such a horrendous occurrence and something as trivial as surf wax made the connection…

  2. Images of people jumping from the Twin Towers shocked me even more than seeing the buildings collapse on TV.

    The way your brain makes connections is a tad unusual, isn’t it?

  3. Lizza – is that ‘your brain’ meaning my brain or brains in general…?
    Roxy – cheeriness is what I’m here for. x
    Twinfinitum – there you go again using Babel fish willy nilly….
