Well, there’s not a story to tell yet. But there may be one rattling around in my head…
I had to go downtown yesterday for a quick little business. I hopped on the train and away I went. (I’m still amazed that I can drop a little token into a gate in Dunwoody and be in the middle of downtown in a few minutes! Yeah, yeah…you can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy!)
So we did our thing, and got back on the train. I was engaged in one of my favorite pastimes – people watching. All of a sudden, as clear as day, this sentence popped into my head:
I walked into the station at Five Points one day, and I never came out.
Sounds like a great “first line” to me. I jotted it down in my trusty Moleskine, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. Who knows?
