Tomorrow I'm heading back to Madison, after this wonderful timeout in Milwaukee. I never do a whole lot here in 'Wauk town, but it's a great place to read and think and write and drink and get all hopped up on coffee and look for original experiences and walk around and be in pleasant weather.
Some day, when I am older but still young, I will make my home here. It will be a thoroughly urban life, filled with opulent pleasures and fatuous routines. My life will consist of takeout and movies, books. The racial tension will occasionally boil over into violence, but I will live safely removed from any threat, connected only by a newspaper.
Not really. I'll probably never live here, but I like my fantasies.
