not a rain culture

A man wearing a red shirt and a silver bolo tie and carrying a small leather journal noticed me as he stepped carefully through the sidewalk puddles and said, “We don’t have a rain culture here.” And it was just that lack of a rain culture that made a rainy day enjoyable.

A alley that’s got trash dumpsters, fire-escape stairs, and a mural is surely an alley that I will stop to look at. And, of course, photograph.

Just because I wanted to, I spent some time on a bench watching people going up and down stairs and in and out of the gallery. It felt worth it the very instant I spotted the woman dusting the railing, while a man entered the exhibit, and another man was looking at something inside.
