yeah don’t know that song but it came to me. It was so warm and misty today. It was hard to see across Washington Park! I head out kind of late, around 9:15 or so. Today I was a little miffed to see so many tourists in their “is this what people in North Beach wear?” uniform. It consists of: jeans, black leather coat, and black shoes. You can see I pay an inordinate amount of attention to what people wear. The middle-aged/early seniors Chinese outfit is: cotton pants, like khakis, and those type of anorak jackets with a zipper, also cotton, in some garish pattern. THere was a couple i the jeans/black leather jacket outfit walking down Columbus very slowly, and it’s so funny because they dress identical (as couples do). Then, there was a group of four wearing all the same outfit. Do they realize they look alike? Maybe the subtle differences in jeans are enough for them?
I’ve been wondering about this odd twinkling sound, like a wind chime, that sounds in one of the blocks near the Pyramid. It’s a block with a row of thick birches, an antique store, nothing special. And that weird twinkling sound. I pity the people that live above it. So I walked on that side one morning and discovered, there’s scaffolding, and hidden in the end of one edge of the scaffolding is a kind of twirling police light in blue, near a driveway. So it’s the “warning, car coming” sound. But it’s going all the time, and you can’t see it.
