I was reflecting on an experience in Armory Square. I was supposed to meet some friends at a bar, and I hadnít been downtown to meet friends for a long time, so it was kind of a new experience.

It was interesting: they stood me up. It was evening, and Armory Square was jammed with people. So I wandered around. As evening wore on, it got louder and louder, because everyone was in the streets, walking and milling about.

In crowds or in cities, when we have high expectations that something will happen, thereís an excitement in the air, a heightened desire. So I felt that. And it was fun, but it was sad, too.

In the circle of
The street light, a spotted dog
Looks for companions
