I wish I could go out now and take a walk. In any other city, I would have. But not in this city.
When I lived in another city, I used to take night walks. Sometimes with friends and sometimes alone. There were always people outside.
I would just wear my shoes and say to my house mates, "I am going for a walk". Or I'd call my friends who lived in the adjacent street and ask if anybody wanted to go for a walk. There was always somebody.
We would walk through the streets, smoking ciggerates. Sometimes we would sit by a park and just watch people. Mostly drunkards.
Once, I sat down with my friend and she just started puking. In the waste basket beside the bench.
"What is wrong?" I asked
"I don't love him anymore" she said
"Shit. You are so fucked" I said
We never talked about it because for many years afterwards she was still with him.
I wish I could take a walk...
