Looking Up

They say that you can always tell a tourist from a New Yorker because tourists are always looking up. New Yorkers don't look up. Deer don't look up. (They have no natural predator from above.) That's why hunters climb up in deer stands and shoot them so easily. Deer should start looking up.

Today I looked up. I walked around the Upper West Side looking at the sky. The light on the buildings, the beautiful blue sky and the wispy white clouds (cirrus clouds, for those who care). 

I think I'll look up more often. Like a tourist.
