A spontaneous 1am voyage in a speeding Mini Cooper convertible throughout Buffalo, NY. Pie at a truck stop diner, followed by the “long way home” downtown through the hazy Sunday night bar scene. Yo La Tengo’s “And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out” was the soundtrack to this evening (as if I didn’t have enough memories already with that album).
There was a cherry blossom hunt through Buffalo State University which eventually led us to the Japanese Gardens in Delaware Park at 3am whilst listening to “Cherry Chapstick”. I have never seen the petals fall under the illumination of a street light before.
If I leave this city, god, dear god, I am going to miss moments like these.
