post boom sundown
As the day ends in a nervous city, I am trying to hope that the economic shitstorm coming our way is going to simplify our lives. Cut out the spurious buying of well-marketed garbage, move people to invite each other into their homes more often than going out to an overpriced bar full of leches -- the kind of lessons we learned in the blackout of 2003 and promptly forgot two months later.
It's a big world to slow down a little.
