Stepping out the front door into a wash of cool autumn air, Katherine closed her eyes and inhaled its crispness.
It doesn’t get much better than this, she thought, walking briskly through the leafy neighborhood.
Her usual 7:00 a.m. route to work caught the city in its final stretch of waking up. She loved the sense of lingering quiet while a blanket of calm lay gently in the air. Even the traffic seemed to move sleepily, preceding the honking, gesturing, and gridlock that would evolve as rush hour developed.
