Leaking Light

I seem to be "leaking"energy today, pedestrians of all stripes cutting me off, nearly running me down, walking right through me, interacting with me when I would prefer to be invisible, and ignoring me when I need to take my space.

Once I've finally made it to the train, I stand in my accustomed place holding the pole, listening to this song, dizzy with sentiment, buoyant with joy. I wish that everyone I've ever known could feel like this, could feel as good as I feel right now. 

I want you to hear this sound, and then we could talk about the romance of despair, how much it reminds us of driving at sunset in the California sun.
