midnight and i was sitting on the steps of the old capitol waiting for george singleton to walk up from the walthall so he could kick it with bobby, melissa, lindsey, josh and i @ soulshine where jaysus was holding his first night of services…it took natalie reminding me that today was the autumnal equinox (and also her birthday) but my body already knew it, i think…sitting on the old capitol stoop, recalling that my last visit there was when eudora welty lay in state, i think i actually felt the summer give way beneath me and i giddily contemplated camp fires, sweaters and low grey evenings with a good book and a glass of cheap red wine…a breeze whispered through the city sleeping before me and all her ghosts slept soundly without and within…damn, i wish thomas wolfe had been there to share it with me…
