Every day after work, I step down from my heels, put on jeans and go for a walk. (Okay, not every day, but nearly.) I've joked with my husband that we need to move to Grandview because I've exhausted the 'material' in this neighborhood. But I do manage to see new things all the time; how people try to bring a little beauty in their lives; the textures and lines most people ignore; the stray cats with their territorial politics.
What do you see?

Off topic: I went to a birthday party the other night and met an elderly gentleman from Brooklyn Heights. He had the most charming conversation style, and was utterly engaging to speak with. He told stories about about his early days in New York and his occasional brush with famous writers and celebrities. He would say things like, "I have another anecdote I think you would enjoy, if you permit me ..." I found myself slowing down to listen. It was delightful.
Have you ever met such a person?
