Notations While Walking

… cold, heavy frost, clear… copious steam from chimney takes me back to house to investigate… all is well… woman with English sheepdog, so regal, dog, not woman…

… lovely Tilda Swinton like woman with long open, sweeping coat flowing around buxom breasts… gaze turned to the side and, unlike yesterday, there is no seeming arrogance, just averting the eyes to avoid unwanted attention…

… i stop in Kitchen and Coffee… testing out winter options for stopping, warming and writing… J sees me and gives me a warm “hi Michael”… nice to be remembered even though i have spent little time here in the past couple of years… nice that she is still there…

… as i walk i consider the idea of involvement in local municipal affairs… i am thinking that paying attention, writing down what i witness and sharing it is the useful thing i can do… it would be in line with Notes On Attention Paid… i am less interested in the fight of politics than bearing witness and helping others “see”…

… i find my way to the City Council Website and there are links to agendas and minutes, even RSS feeds…

… K&C is slicker, more modern, less homey than Ella’s Bellas… a comfortable if somewhat overly neutral environment… a template for a chain?…

… the crowd is building… time to go…
