3rd Avenue

This past weekend in the freezing cold I walked up 3rd Avenue in Park Slope towards a friend’s party. It was late and everything seemed, as Huck Finn might narrate, all sad and lonesome.

At 3rd St., I came upon this huge empty lot, with only an old and beautiful building at its corner, with a demolition company’s sign on it. It was bittersweet.

The sunset earlier that night.

Beautiful, David. I’ve had that same experience walking up windy winter streets in Park Slope, all sad and lonesome. Tonight I watched the Earth’s shadow cover the moon in front of my hotel and ended up talking to a young singer-songwriter who also stopped to look at the eclipse. A nice moment of cosmic fellowship.

As Huck would say, “all sad and lonesome.” I know that feeling.
