Monday Morning: A User's Manual

Wake up and think it's trite but true that it's nice to get up with the sun.
Look out the window and realize it's overcast. Grumble.
Dream of how great one of those Blue Sky muffins would taste.
Get out of the house and walk to the train, listening to Fences.
Read about urban planning on the train.
Wonder why every book seems to have a chapter called "On the Waterfront."
Breathe in the comforting scent of Blue Sky Bakery and pick up mango coconut zucchini muffin.
Muse about how Fences has a sound reminiscent of Beach House--that dreamy atmospheric tone. Remember listening to Beach House in the enchanted hibernation of wintry Carroll Gardens earlier in the year. Remember listening to "Walk in the Park," walking through snowy Brooklyn Heights streets on the way to curl up at Iris Cafe. Remember waking up before the alarm, feeling satisfied, picking up a chocolate croissant and walking over the Brooklyn Bridge to work.
Realize this remembering has lasted all the way from Park Slope to Chambers Street and it is only 8:30.
Wonder how this happened.
Get to work and start consuming mango coconut zucchini muffin.
