missing the city

Summer's beginning and I'm in my windowless office- usually perfectly fine, but today I am nostalgic for what I would have been doing around this time last year- enjoying our lush if slightly seedy DC neighborhood, tutoring at the elementary school's summer program (which was so fun), running in Rock Creek Park (usually fun), and studying for the bar (not really ever fun). Even then I knew it was a temporary phase, a quiet space I needed to enjoy before the craziness of July and, oh yeah, being pregnant. But those cathedrals of trees, the blooming postage-stamp yards, and a day just stretched out for me to live inside my own head. Nice stuff.
