Sink, Saint John, Sink

My wife says she likes the rain because there is no pressure to get outside and enjoy yourself. It took me awhile to understand what she meant, but as I sink into middle age and deeper into roots in this city, I think I understand better what she meant. There’s a certain comfort in the isolation, a certain vigor in the battle against maritime weather, and a sadness that mirrors the omnipresent inertia and even decay in my little city of Saint John.
