Have i mentioned lately that i like this city so much? A few hours ago i was walking down chestnut, around twentieth; it was past four and the sun was setting. The amtrak building was cloudy, angular and reflecting the kind of blue sky i’ve only ever experienced here. Idyllic blue. A perfect blue. The kind of skies you run away from home for. Philadelphia on a bad day is still a beautiful old dame. Shining and cool, with big history on every corner, a place to call my own—and i’m still amazed, shocked that i actually live here.
