Skies are pure-blue clear in Brooklyn today. Cool, but not too cold. The light comes down at a strong slant from the south at this time of year. If you wear a knit cap, better include the sunglasses, at least if walking approximately south.
Home from work and couldn't be happier on that front. Work is for the dogs, or birds, or something.
This is semi-official hookey. Given the day off from work to do work. But no one around to make sure you do it. But there will be hell to pay if it doesn't get done.
