what i see when i'm not complaining
copied from outgoing email to vinz ...
so last night i was riding home on the 14 from rembrandtplein, and it was a mild evening with fog. and i was admiring how the fog played with the lights and the shapes of the buildings. and as the tram whirled through the dam i was admiring those sights i had first seen in 1975. and then we stopped to pick up passengers beside the palace, the doors opened, i heard a bit of saxophone echoing from the musician on the corner. and we moved on, and i looked up at the gables and balconies and down at the water in the canals, and my eye was kept entertained.
