Benediction snippet for a sunny Sunday morning

“My radiation started the next morning at seven. Traffic was light. The bike drill was the same: downhill Douglass and then Eighteenth to Noe, uphill Noe through the deadly intersection at Market, past Café Flore, where I’d usually had Thursday breakfast with Terry from AA, before my slip, the one he still did not know about. Then it was flat on Noe through the part of San Francisco that reminded me of New Orleans—something about the balconies, or the green hanging plants, something that gave off that mood—then carefully over the Muni tracks at Duboce Park and up into the tougher Haight and Western Addition neighborhoods.”  page 182, Benediction.
