When the Palinode was out of town for a few day recently, I took myself out for a solo sushi dinner at Michi. It felt a little lonely, but in that delicious, rainy day, my-life-is-very-deep-and-important way that used to hit me in my early twenties, so it was like a snapshot of my youth, and I liked it. Also, the tea was excellent.
These are some flowers on my balcony, or, rather, they were some flowers. Fall is stealing the green out of the container plants pretty quickly. It's still gorgeous, though. I'm a sucker for crisp air and autumn evening light.
