the rain, the spring, the grayness of it all...

Posted to Roadgoing




so it's raining in connecticut, and for some reason i've had a fallback to a day i had just like this in berlin last year...and here's a bit of bittersweet reminiscence; that day was part of a remarkable bit of aimless backpacking, whilst today is swamped in pompous academia and the mushy new england spring. it's made me laugh and cry, remembering the effortless beauty of wandering lost in a city i didn't know, walking in the silent stillness of the perpetual drizzle, submerged in the grayness of the stone and the fog and the smoke rising off gaulois cigarettes... i have the teasing feeling that it's time for a jaunt on the road again.
