ABOUT 9 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, Stan Honda's telephone rang. An airplane had crashed into the World Trade Center. Honda turned on his television as he prepared to take the subway downtown. On arrival, he saw smoke rising from the towers, and he ran toward them. There was chaos, and, suddenly, a loud crash as the first tower collapsed. It was difficult to make sense of what was happening.

"I walk on concrete, I walk on sand, but I can't find a safe place to stand," PJ Harvey sang Thursday at the Knitting Factory Hollywood. "I'm scared baby, I wanna run, the world's crazy, gimme the gun." Harvey's song, "Big Exit," is from last year's "Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea" album and has nothing to do with the recent terrorist attacks, but, as she performed it, you couldn't help think that it did. Such is the elasticity of great art.

Lorna Swartz could be like any other child psychiatrist. Outside her practice in Escondido, she plays a major role in Mesa Vista Hospital's Partnership in Education program, where she helps school counselors deal with difficult student cases. But what isn't as apparent is that Swartz, a native of Johannesburg, South Africa, was active for many years in operating a multiracial anti-apartheid school for children with special learning problems.

Ed Bia, Southwestern College financial counselor, listens quietly to the concerns of an anxious student. He speaks, softly, with a voice smooth and low, dispensing advice and reassurance. At 5 p.m., his work done, the counselor heads for his Bonita home. Less than an hour later, in a Hawaiian print shirt and baseball cap, Bia leans forward in his glass booth, grabs the microphone and screams, "Goooood Morning, Vietnam!"

'I seem to photograph birds more than anything else. They are the most challenging. . . . A flower just sits there.' The walls of Anthony Mercieca's Chula Vista home are covered with vivid color photographs of hawks, bison, bull elk and kit foxes. One picture--of an elf owl swooping down on a field mouse--took Mercieca over a week to capture just the way he wanted. But spending hours, even days, waiting for the right shot is nothing upsetting to the 51-year-old nature photographer who has traveled the world and snapped for such publications as National Geographic and Audubon.

Wednesday morning, scanning the newspaper in search of information that might begin to restore a shattered equilibrium, I was stopped in my tracks by a photograph. The picture showed a solitary woman, mummified in ash, frozen in mid-stride. Her mouth is open, more in stunned exhaustion than in any apparent effort to speak. Her eyes instead do the job usually assumed by language, imploring us straight through the reciprocal eye of a camera lens. A yearning open hand is raised in our direction.
