It's still fairly chilly here in the Big Apple, despite the sunshine. Add to that various free-floating anxieties about life and work and, well, it's feeling very grey right now.
I get out of the subway on my way to work, and there's a promotion for the show Jake in Progress. It's only been on once or twice (maybe) and I've not watched it but I think the conceit is that we (the audience) are watching a date unfold in "real time", much like on 24. The promotion people are giving away flowers. Nothing expensive, nothing fancy, just a simple daisy.
And suddenly, things feel just a little less grey.
