brooklyn

it's late. i'm up. per usual. 
brooklyn's on my mind. 
today especially i am missing it.  park slope was quieter than i imagined. slower than i expected. it was a family neighborhood. lots of parents and nannies pushing strollers with littles all bundled up snug. kids playing in park or walking all over on their lunch break from school. in the evenings the streets were close to empty. i kind of adored it. even though it was cold. bitter cold. the wind was the kind that cut through every layer straight to your bones. so most of the trip was spent seeking refuge in whatever store, restaurant, or coffee shop looked warm. but i liked it that way. there was no itinerary. no plans. just wandering and exploring. shuffling down the sidewalk, arms wrapped tightly around ourselves, until the cold drove us indoors. then we would warm ourselves with beer or comforting food and sit for a long while until we were buzzed or full enough to brave the frigid weather again. it was a lazy trip really. just walking and eating and subway riding and people watching. but i loved it.
