I suppose it's the outer fringes of tropical storm Dennis. Today the sky is gray and somber. The trees are heavy with condensation and rain. Walking down Howard Street it feels like some remote village in a distant tropical rain forest. Birds call gently from trees nearby. The world around us is mostly quiet, but lush and alive, just waiting to spring forth with the first rays of sunshine.
