Fear in My Heart

Two things struck fear in my heart today. First, this article in the Sunday Times Magazine by Edmund Andrews about his personal debt. I for one understood how his once solid, steady financial life spun out of control, and it was terrifying. Two, I saw a group of grown ups playing in Riverside park today. They were playing Quidditch.

Very brave. I'd heard him on All Things Considered Friday afternoon and even then I couldn't believe it. It feels like a million years ago but probably about ten someone wrote an article in Harper's about going broke in New York on a six figure salary (I want to say it was Vince Pisarro, but isn't that a painter?).....then it was private school that was the culprit, which is its own form of cultural madness. The Andrews article resonated for me in the same way....like I couldn't believe someone was saying all that for all to see.....
