I am just a man in a window this month. You can see me from the taproom, the tech startup offices, or the boutique home goods + snacks shop. I am standing with a glass of tea or wine looking through the rain and at the rain. My clothes would be described as comfortable but not particularly cozy. The lights are on throughout the day. I am touching the drooping leaves of houseplants with empathy.

Actually we’ve been out carousing and making the most of the gloom a fair bit. After seeing The Darlings at the Metro, Jon commented on how November is always a drinking month. We’re leaning into that. 3am Saturday nights don’t feel so late when it’s always dark. It’s a great time to unravel together.
