I sent the wire transfer for the deposit on the Istanbul place. SDA said to me first thing this morning ‘there’s no one I’d rather have adventures with’. It will be a grand adventure, but Ditmas Park is pretty fabulous too.
This morning I cramped up between 1.5 and 2.5 miles and had to walk, so I did an extra loop at the end of my route around a long block. At the end of that very last loop a school crossing guard, who I swear I’ve never seen before, stopped me and with a big smile said “You made it round really fast! I was watching.” I love the eye contact and smiles along the way, but that comment takes the cake.
And, the other day I noticed this fabulous mystery item:
What is it? It’s a single work boot with a very large rock in it that has been bound in an exceptionally complicated pattern and placed just inside the perimeter of a church yard. Art? Binding Spell? Symbolic Catharsis? Joke? All of the above? You choose. No, I did not touch it. No, I’ve not gone back to check on it.
And then this:
The sign reads “Hey Pretty Lady who bought my table and stools on Sunday… I found a missing piece!!! I really hope you find this!!” And yes, that is a piece of wood taped to a lamp post. The toothy smile drawn on the sign is really the best part.
I’m going to miss this place.
