Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 – Brooklyn
I’m back in Brooklyn. The sun is shining. Hector is yelling across the street to someone on the other side. Out of laziness more than anger. The someone is either not responding or responding at a volume that suggests they know other people live here too. I hear children screaming in the schoolyard. I think we have a new neighbour the other side of the chimney who likes to watch 50’s movies in the daytime. Or new neighbours who are going through a 50’s type understated baritone melodrama. It’s a new frequency slipping through the walls. Not entirely unpleasant. Yet.
We got back to the United States of “He Did What Now?” last night. I was asleep by ten pm. I got up early went for a jog and a walk down to the Artificial Lake in Prospect Park. I bought two tomatoes and a bunch of kale at the farmer’s market in the park. $6.30. Yup. I’m back alright.
