It’s day four of wind and incessant heavy spring rain

Simple errands (with a sample sale or two – okay three – Suno, Mayle, APC and Acne

all in the same span, then soon Barneys/Bergdorf/Isabel Marant sale so God help me)

 become the classic city monsoon adventure of upside down umbrellas

flash downpours and almost getting splashed by taxi cabs.

Though a comical nuisance, embracing what might be the last week to wear warm jackets,

layered up trenchcoats, and the perfect excuse for staying indoors finishing up projects

while listening to the sound of rain,

starting new ones!
