In order to break the tension between us, we're headed for the beach this weekend! We're not really fighting, but we are going to the beach. Yippee!
This morning, waiting for a light to turn green, this is what I saw:
A young woman at the bus stop has her back to me. She bends over the low guard rail and gives something a harder look. She glances over both shoulders and then leans down a little lower to pick it up out of the tall grass. It's a black Nike bookbag. I could see the symbol clearly. Again, she looks over both shoulders and I can see her sifting through it. As I'm about to pull off, I see her wry smile and watch as she turns toward traffic and slips the headphones over her ears.
