and the weather has broken

Toronto, 2013.07.19

For once I got really lucky with the weather. I was carrying home a laptop for study purposes this weekend (it has the practice quiz software for my upcoming CIA exam) and made it home just before six. Mere minutes later, the sky really opened up. It was some of the hardest rain I've ever seen in this city, turning the air that silver semi-solid way that it gets in a typhoon in Tokyo (though much more briefly).

I doubt I was home even ten minutes.

Coincidentally, I got a really hard rain at 7/23 in Tokyo. I love the phrase "the sky opened up". It's cool expression.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

In the wake of 9/11, we [in America] have made the decision as a society that we can never again create something in which we can take pride, for fear that someone will destroy it. Moreover, we must suppress any trace of individualism, lest someone have the desire to rise above the bland sameness that protects us. I have, alas, no idea how to recapture our courage.
