Safe travels. I finished it (fortunately, or unfortunately, a gift). Take care.


This particular memorial is an odd mix of the sacred and the playful. The space invites you to run, explore, move about...not contemplate. But I didn't get the full effect of the place until my 3 year old got out of eyesight and an increasingly tense game of hide and seek ensued. A few brief minutes of the fear of losing your child was perhaps the best memorial of the loss, dislocation, and separation that it reflects on.

I still love the space, but now it holds both playful and menacing resonance for me.
