I woke up and I felt like I had not posted since the start of the year, working on side projects and general intellectual masturbation. Where does the time go? Maybe I have delegated myself into a ring of distraction. I will probably finish something completely at some point or not.
I don't think that cranberry water is a "upgrade" over a soda especially since cranberry water is not significant source of anything and I have to pay a extra 10 dollars to get it. With soda at least you get bubbles that sing only to you.
Yesterday I let a shirtless little boy cross the road on East Street. He could not be more than 9 or 10. He was at a precarious spot around a corner, watching the cars, trying to cross the road, pushing a big-ass bicycle. It was one of those 10 speed bicycles with the curved handle bar, no decals, a solid bronze colour, it was obviously old, probably a hand me down. He said thanks as he reached the other side and I waved back at him as I drove off. I probably saved his life or maybe he saved mine. We'll never know. I was watching my rear view carefully and there weren't any cars behind me. I could have driven past but I felt that I had to see him across the road and at that moment I was responsible for him and that was something I could not leave to chance.
