After work I walked downtown to pick up groceries. Afternoon sunlight slanted through the tall maples surrounding Church of Our Lady, lighting them like a halo. Red vines stood out against the grey wall of the train overpass. Shops along Carden Street were brightly painted with murals of hockey players and so on. People walked up and down the hill in singles and pairs. The world was radiant and I was going out to do errands, not because I had to, but because I was full of vigour and desire to live my life. I was swimming with the current.
