early one morning, the sun was shining

..and I was on the phone with Aetna figuring out student health insurance. Today is a taking-care-of-business kind of Monday.

Last night I went to The Brewer’s Art, a local brewery across the street from the Belvedere in Mount Vernon, with B and G from Poland. We talked local theater, EURYDICE choruses, and beer. It was delightful. As B drove us back, he was debating the merits of Charles Village, block by block, intersection by intersection. I think one of the trademarks of a real Baltimorean is a microscopic knowledge of block ecologies. I was impressed. He was differentiating between the east and west sides of a north-south street in terms of safety and livability.
