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

Saturday reflections

Summer in the city.

It doesn't feel anything close to normal, but compared to last summer it's Shangri-La. I went out earlier to the dry cleaner's and the grocery store, and ran into a couple of neighbors I hadn't seen in many months, and we just stood on the sidewalk chatting.

Okay, we were all wearing masks, but those routine encounters, the little bits and pieces that add up to a life, are one of the things I missed most during the long, long lockdown.
