I'm standing at the bathroom sink, brushing my teeth with my brand new toothbrush. It's obvious that the sun's shining now, after a whole lot of rain during the night and early morning. I raise the blinds to take a look out the window.
Only neutral-colored vehicles visible along the sidewalks, beneath the virtually leafless trees. Omens, a portent of things to come, I wonder. Gray skies. White snow. Brown leaves. Black ice.
I walk out into the living room to get my camera. After raising the window and taking out the sliding-half-screen, I turn on the camera and focus just as the girl and the guy walk into view on this side of the street and the man steps into view from behind the tree trunk across the street.
