Sometimes you get lucky, as I did on September 29th.

It had been raining for a couple of days, and the clouds began to clear just before sunset. One set out for a short constitutional walk.

The light was staggering. Saturated and warm.

As soon as I got to Northern Blvd. I knew where I’d be heading.

Sunnyside Yards, which is within throwing distance of HQ.

Just as I got there, it looked like the sky had caught on fire.

I made my way to “Hole Reliable” just as an LIRR train set was passing beneath it.

Continued on, a humble narrator did.

Skillman Avenue at Honeywell, just as the light show was ending.

This was a short walk, stretching my legs, as it were, so I headed back to Northern Blvd. intending to head back to Astoria.

By the time I got to another one of my catalog of fence holes, dusk was giving way to night.

“Every time might be the last time.”
