Today I took a car to Penn Station … but found that Amtrak had cancelled all trains to Boston due to the antics of my new friend, Hurricane Irene. Rather than swearing and stomping, I decided to celebrate my good fortune of not being able to go to work by walking home. It was a beautiful day, cool, sunny, with the air swept clean of even the smallest particles of dirt and soot. I stopped about a third of the way home at the Starbuck’s cafe pictured above … if the walk home was so pleasant, why not prolong it by hanging out?
