On Tuesday, March 27th, a rather unsettling feeling upon leaving my apt building in the morning to finding a pool of dried blood on the steps.

John said he'd heard a scuffle outside late last night, but didn't investigate. This morning, at around 8am, someone was ringing all the buzzers to our apt doors. If I am not expecting anyone I don't buzz yah in. Strange tidings! Later that evening, I attended a BFP Fundraiser committee meeting in Brooklyn, which was interesting and productive.
