Not to make this about me more than as a framing device and appropriately journal-like recording, but last night was a brilliant Smash and I'd finally decided to get out of my funk and venture to campus and see people and today I was noodling around before stuff...  I spent a chunk of late-night early-morning wandering around the Back Bay, tracing the blocked off streets...

And bombs went off at the Boston Marathon, about an hour ago.  I didn't hear it but a roommate came in and told us - she was outside at the time.

It's a couple blocks from my house, and it's bad.  I was on the roof just now and there's a cop starting to route pedestrians off that side of Commonwealth.  There's a static helicopter, and sirens everywhere.  And pictures of blood.

Thank you ;) Every time I go outside it's... making me very confused, actually. So much of the city is normal, even down to blocked streets and news vans and police everywhere, and yet it's all so very OFF still...

My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families. Such a horrible thing to happen.

I'm glad you're ok.

I know this is nothing on what's been happening and still happening in other parts of the world, but how does it even make sense, you know? This wasn't even a place, it was just a random group of people watching a charity race...

The feeling of this can't be happening HERE is what I recall from the Newtown shooting back in December. That was only minutes from my house and I know people affected by that event. I can only imagine you are feeling the same with this awful event happening so close to you.

Stay safe

Happily, it looks like no one I know, first or second order, was involved or even nearby on the street. So that's something. Now I'm just so confused, walking around, how it's all about camped out news vans and groups of placid police, pedestrians clumping and staring at blocked-off roads...
