Just this

I was walking down the street yesterday, on my v important faxing errand (see yesterday post if you're deeply mystified and intrigued) and passed this older gentleman, white hair, white stubble and glasses, who, upon seeing me, broke into a wide, beaming smile, waved his hand in the air and said, in the tones of one passing on the gladdest tidings to a dear friend, "Evening is coming, evening is coming," and broke into a spontaneous, excited laugh, a laugh of complicity.

I, mid-stride, turned my head toward him, instinctively smiling, but puzzled, and said something like, "Oh. Yes, it is."

I mean, he had a point.
