Current Song: Annie's Always Waiting (For the Next One to Leave) by Matt Nathanson

I have seen this city in the day and the sun.
I have seen this city in the night and the moon.
And in the night and the moon I have seen a thing this city gave me nothing of in the day and the sun.

- from Tangibles by Carl Sandburg

Hmm...
Carl has me thinking.
I usually feel like the city TAKES from me, rather than GIVES to me.
I need to pay more attention to my city's gifts...
