Tonight at Sidebar, we sat out on the back patio, and while everyone at the table was busy getting drunk and talking about whatever they were talking about, I was staring up at the huge windows in the condos at the top of the Hilton.
In the next to top window on the far right corner, way up in the sky, I could see someone's Christmas tree glowing in the darkness of the rest of their house, as all the other lights were out. It was covered totally in white lights and it looked really warm and cozy.
It made me really sad. But it also made me feel hopeful.
