Picture of the Day
February 14, 2019

...this time i noticed the ashtrays on the bar right away. what were the
chances? paddy's wasn't as busy but i struck up a conversation with the
guy nearest me. he recently retired from the EPA after 30 years and for the
next two hours we went deep into conservation, meditation, quantum physics,
neuroscience, and other heady topics. then i met sarah for valentine's day dinner
and together we returned to the locust and shared a cigarette for the gritty thrill of it.
