About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. Good one!

    I’ll start my own 3 days tomorrow, because of 9/11. It just didn’t seem right, somehow.

    • I thought about that, but I tend to want to keep living or whatever the mentality boils down to. Though I shy away from the TV because I’m scared to stumble onto a channel showing videos from the day. Still chilling to watch.

      Unfortunately, I’ve seen fewer and fewer people acknowledge the day. Some even use it to push an anti-something agenda, which is why FB and I might not be seeing each other until tomorrow.

      • I was surprised by that. This year feels kinda numb. I even saw someone sign off with a “have a great 9/11,” as if it were a national holiday or something.

        Still, it might be a healthy sign if that means the pain is somehow being dealt with.

      • I’ve seen that before. It’s so disturbing at times. You have a bunch of people who think this is a holiday or their sense of time is so distorted that it feels like ancient history. I think it’s more of the former, which makes me a little mad. Coming from NY State and only 45 minutes from NYC, I might be a bit more sensitive than someone from further away. Then again, I remember hearing someone say ‘9/11 was a New York event, so they should shut up and get over it’. Never have I wanted to commit assault so much.

      • Ouch. I’m halfway across the globe and still remember where I was at the time, not to mention my shock.

        Still, perhaps it’s a coping mechanism. After all, all major holidays come from deeply traumatic events, come to think of it. Maybe treating it as a holiday is just people’s coping mechanism.

      • Maybe. I’ll probably post something later just to get stuff off my chest. Surprisingly, I haven’t seen any ‘where were you’ posts this year.

      • I just read your 9/11 post. Beautiful and poignant. Thanks for sharing.

      • Thanks. Took more out of me than I realized it would. Have a parent/teacher meeting in 2 hours, so probably good to have gotten it off my chest.
