It's almost 9:30 and I didn't post a damned thing today. I did go out and took some pictures that were intended to be part of a post. I haven't looked at them yet, but I suspect they may suck.
I'll look at them tomorrow and decide whether or not they're usable. We'll see.
I will pass on one thing that happened today. I was at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. That's a spot with a great view of Lower Manhattan, The Brooklyn Bridge, and The Statue of Liberty. While I'm standing there, a woman walks up to me and with a heavy Caribbean accent asks if that's the city. I said yes and she said it was her first time seeing it. When I asked her where she was from, she said, "Flatbush". For those of you who don't know, Flatbush is a Brooklyn neighborhood about 3 miles from where we were standing. I asked her where she lived before Flatbush, she said she'd lived there all her life.
So here's a woman (she looked to be in her 30's) who's lived in Flatbush all her life and she's never seen Manhattan before. Don't get me wrong, I love Brooklyn. But you know what? There are things about living here that are hard. And if I wanted to go 30-odd years without seeing Manhattan, I sure as hell would do it somewhere cheaper and easier than Brooklyn.
