At the end of a long day in sales meetings, I was more than ready for a break. As I walked along the beach, these two palm trees reminded me of the twin towers we lost on 9/11. The swaying of the trees echoed the windy day swaying of the buildings when I worked there: in addition to actually feeling it as you sat or walked, there was always the water sloshing in the sink, doors swinging on their hinges. My memories of the Trade Center jump up and bite me at unexpected times, but this reminder was somehow comforting.
