If you were in Manhattan today and didn’t have to spend the entire day working, what would you do? I don’t own a raincoat. Maybe that’s what I should do with my day, but that’s not a very exciting answer to, "so whadya do today?" I have writing to do, photography sites to argue with (most of my photos will soon be available for sale), html pages to design, books to read (I’m in the middle of about 4 books right now), an article to write for a magazine, and a whole lot of phone calls to return. I’ve been a recluse. I roasted a chicken last night, stuffed it with cornbread stuffing with sausage, apple, and craisins. I have leftovers; there’s no cooking to be done. Normally, about now, I’d head off to Fourbucks for a latte, plug in myPod, and get to writing. Today, I don’t feel like sitting in that cafe. I need a change. But it’s raining! Who wants to go out in the rain without proper rain gear? I guess there’s always the museum, but that sounds so, eh. Sometimes I see a piece of art, and I wish it had instructions beside it, explaining how the artist did it. I saw a photograph printed on etching paper. I thought it was canvas; it looked dreamy. I wanted to know if he shot it through a softening filter. Maybe I should go photograph people in the rain. It would mean getting wet and no writing done.
