  • Leave the A train at High Street. Go down the hill towards the Brooklyn Bridge. Go up a hill towards the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. Stand at the promenade. Admire the view. Capture it. Be lost. (But if you know where you are, how are you lost? Manage.) See no one on the water. See no one on the basketball court below. See no one to your right or to your left. Text. Call. Go back down the hill, away from BQE, back towards the bridge, back towards the water. See your friends waving from the shore. Hear them call your name. Remember your childhood summers on Lake Michigan when you hop from rock to rock.
