A Quick Visit to Urbane Terrain
It's possible to linger too long beneath the radar during a slight illness like the one I'm suffering from. I'm feeling emotionally vulnerable, too, so I've been laying low.
Also, Brother Wind is in a capricious mood and I haven't wanted to subject my sinuses to the crazy weather that comes along with his unpredictable behavior: clear, warm and peaceful, then five minutes later completely overcast with gusty winds, followed by a heavy rainshower, then five minutes later, clear as a bell again.
But my friend insisted I accompany her to the urbane terrain of Dupont Circle for a bowl of udon noodle soup and a quick trip to Kramerbooks. Getting out, even when it would be more prudent to stay in, is sometimes just the ticket in the midst of a healing crisis. It was today anyway. Thanks Barbara!
