Yesterday I was busy. I made a list of things I had to do and methodically went through it, happily crossing off each item. There are a couple of things left to do today before I go back upstate.

Walking down a buzzing Montague Street I felt physically uncomfortable in the noise, the crowds, and most of all the sickening smell that we have on the streets after they've been cleaned in the summer, when all the rotted trash and god-knows-what is ground into a slush and wiped along the asphalt. It is a smell that literally makes me gag.
