Living just enough, just enough for the city


Yesterday a few coworker friends and I walked a block and a half to Dilworth Park, joining hundreds of strangers for an impromptu visit from Stevie Wonder. We ducked out after a speech on love and a song. I love you Stevie, but standing in a sweaty crowd with no air flow and body odor on the rise is not for me.
City Hall, that was the best place to be. Open those old windows and listen to some sweet Stevie crooning.

Despite the heat, humidity, crowds. and BO, it was still a nice surprise on a Monday afternoon. There aren't enough nice surprises on Monday afternoons, are there? I appreciated this one.

Hot days bring fresh fears:
Body odor in a crowd.
Nose and soul perish.

  1. That's so cool! And also good that you knew about it. I'm always the person that hears about these things just after said event happens. At least I'd have missed out on the BO though.... Yeuch.

  2. I love that he did that yesterday. I think he hit DC in the AM and finished in Central Park. It was freaking hot yesterday though.

  3. So true. Not enough surprises on Monday afternoons. Now... How did you find out about this impromptu visit? I'm sitting here thinking about the logistics of it, and I'm actually really impressed he did it! I like it!!

  19. Impromptu performance?! Does Philly have many of these happen? Because that's pretty freakin' awesome. Except the body odor part.

  23. That's pretty awesome there was an impromptu concert. I love when those happen in the city. On Friday's in the summer there's a concert every week on my way to work. I was able to catch OAR this year.

  24. Despite the sweaty, smelly crowd, this is a really cool way to spend even a small part of your Monday afternoon. The haiku at the end of this post is pure gold.
