I finally made it back. The Old Soldier pushed himself hard, marching from his apartment, down South Craig Street, pass Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, through Schenley Park, over to the campus of Carnegie Mellon University, back through Schenley Park, stopping at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, back up South Craig Street and then home.
It was around 90 degrees outside and I got a little light-headed. I had to fill up my water bottle at a fountain in Schenley Park but everything turned out fine. Now I’m back at my workstation and it’s not even 1:00 in the afternoon.
South Craig Street has a lot of ethnic shops and restaurants. In the window of one shop on a plaque was this: Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. Mahatma Gandhi
You can’t beat that with a stick!
Well, Friday is the first of the new month. That means I’ll be going to karaoke at Del’s in Bloomfield (Little Italy) and I’ll be publishing a new report on female sexology by The Love Doctor and a new flash fiction short story by a guess writer, both this coming weekend.
There was nothing new on the news shows on television this morning. Just the same old crap about the presidential campaign, local and international politics and growth and austerity. It gets kind of tiresome.
The Old Soldier is glad that he has his library books on Andy Warhol and ancient Greece to read and karaoke to look forward to this Friday.
Keep reading and keep writing that flash fiction.
