Saturday in Santurce
Sent an Iphone picture to my buddies back at the bank in New York without a word. I wanted them to wonder, “What’s Will up to?” Not another Saturday in the park, my friends.
I found a place to live in Santurce, not far from Maria. Saturday we spent the day walking around her neighborhood. I saw where she went to high school, her church. She asked if I want to meet her there this morning. I’m on my way now. “Blue church,” she told me. I’m thinking, “That’s different.” But blue skies are all I see ahead of me now.
Last night, I learned to Salsa. On weekends, when the fruit and vegetable vendors close up shop for the day, the Santurce market becomes a dance floor. Dancing with Maria last night made me surer than ever she’s the one. If I go back to New York, it will be to buy her ring.
