Right now, in this line, I am falling in love with a Japanese girl, with her perfect, short floppy haircut and her Gucci sunglasses in the shade and her big upper lip and her scarf over skinny legs, and her ring-a-ling laugh. I don’t understand a word she is saying.
Celebrating the start of the end of an unrealized beginning.
You welcome discomfort when it shoos away the worry you wear as a blanket.
Vermont is lovely this time of year.

I’m at this lovely little public space right outside my apartment where they offer free wi-fi and the river offers a sweet breeze. There is a dog run and lounge chairs made of stone and tables for computing with soft drinks and a playground. Today the playground is teeming with kids of all sizes.

This morning I awoke after having a real bummer of a Saturday, and decided to make this day my bitch. I suited up and headed for the Hudson River Park for a quick run. The sun was not yet out, and it wasn’t hot, and the run was easy. At Hudson River Park I saw a decrepit old ferris wheel, some neato fountains and a naval ship with military planes parked on top.
