November 15, 2016, around 8am
Jazz and the smells of coffee, clove and cinnamon float around me
Sitting and knitting
I am a fly on the wall
Looking busy
Do they know I’m listening?
Maybe they don’t care
Maybe they want a passive audience
A beefy woman in a hoodie across the way
Talking politics with her friend
She uses hard Rs like mine
Her boisterous guffaws are punctuated by a wet cough which turns her face red and which she does not cover
To the left of me, intellectuals discussing Jewish issues
They are trying to make sense of things
One kindly looking American woman
A man, Sendak’s doppelgänger, is smart and reassuring with a learn’d English accent
The third, a slight woman, with a soft French cadence
If you close your eyes she might be Leslie Caron
Diagonal from them, a woman in all black
Young and professionally dressed
Twists a lock of blond hair and looks concerned
She gathers her things and departs
My urge to go gathers, too
There’s a day ahead in which possibilities exist for marvelous things
This is just a moment in time
But I want to make it count
And there is magic to do
