I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Saturday reflections

Some nice sharp Manhattan angles in the dappled light of early morning on Sixth Avenue.

It doesn't seem possible that in a few hours all of this will be getting pounded by Hurricane Irene. The lines at the grocery store last night were insane, snaking down every aisle all the way to the back of the store, where they all curled around until there was no longer any way to tell which line was which. People were buying cases of water, canned tuna, milk and bread, but also smoked salmon, salamis, cheeses, good olives -- if we're going to be stuck in our apartments for two days, at least we're going to eat well!

I'm going to make a big pot of pasta, recharge my Kindle, put some duct tape over the windows and just wait it out.
