The Dogs

Fall quarter started and the streets of University City are back to their version of normal. The August hiatus brings new feet to the Ave, unfamiliar choreography to the sidewalk, and a discernible crash in the level of the competition.

This year hiatus felt rough and downtown. Sometimes it feels country or more southern. Now there’s a pre-election jostle in the air, reaction times are back to their usual speed of light, and the costumes are again interesting and challenging to observe.

The street kids provide continuity between quarters. I don’t know what that might be, but I do know that I respect them.

Man I love being on foot! It took two weeks to regain my balance after a week’s automotive vacation.
