I moved to a new neighbourhood a while ago and haven’t had a lot of time to discover it yet. Tonight, after a long day of sleeping off a hangover while outside it was the most beautiful, sunny day, I decided to go for a walk in the evening hours.
It was still warm outside, the air smelling like spring and I was on my own most of the time. I walked the streets in the dark for half an hour and discovered many places I had never seen before, beautiful old houses, empty playgrounds between town houses, a nice boutique, a winery and a book store I want to visit soon.
Some children were running around late on the street ringing on people’s doors and running away screaming. Some guy sitting in his open window smoking a cigarette while next doors you could hear the piano playing from the inside.
It was quite and I was on my own, peeking inside houses and getting fresh air. Then I came home with a clear head and some inspiration.
