August 26: Audra

If I could name today, I'd call it Rejection. Among its lights:

1. Waking up to the September cover of National Geographic magazine. Look at his eyes!

2. Jung and Benson met me in Kensington Market (where the incredible Nunca Antes, Brazilian Maracatu drummers, performed).

3. My wonderful friend Audra listened to me spilling my heart out from a payphone booth, folding bike parked outside, cell phone dead.

And I kept biking and biking, all the way home...
