    Running Home in the Rain
    It started raining around 10 last night. I was standing on the top step outside of Grassroots on St. Marks smoking a cigarette while my friends huddled under the awning. With my face turned up towards the sky, and my arms outstretched, I felt like a kid again. It was the first true spring rain of the season. Warm, drenching, beautiful. People walking by on the streets, scurrying around under umbrella's looked at my like I was crazy. But for a minute there the rain felt so great.

    After all the concerts, the fights, the panic attack, the hurt feelings, the emotions I wasn't sure what to do with, the rain felt fantastic. By the time I left the bar it was no longer raining, it was pouring. And by the time I got to the Pacific Street stop in Brooklyn it was downright monsooning. Not having an umbrella I ran the four blocks to my apartment. Right at my corner I took a running leap and landed in the middle of a puddle, drenching what portions of me were not dripping already.

    Sometimes it takes some gritty New York City rain to wash off all the muck.

      The day that you're too old to jump in puddles is the day that you're too old for life.
