From the Where I Am series:

September 9, 2010

The drone of a lawn hedging apparatus screams though the quiet mood of the campus. The auditory interruption is blessedly garnished with the sweet smell of grass. The heat of the sun warms me. I’m sitting on concrete. A corner of concrete to be exact. A cute girl just walked by, Blond, black shirt. I smile, she takes no notice. A man in a utility truck drives by. I smile. He smiles. It’s warm today. Finally. Unfortunately, it’s a Friday which means the warm weather won’t bring less clothing to girls as Friday on a college campus is rather lonely. More men in utility trucks and gardeners. All hope is not lost though. A fleeting sideways glance from a passerby makes this concrete seat worth it.
