Today is different.
The air doesn't smell right. The traffic patterns are all off. The birds are quiet. The city doesn't feel right.
There is something different. Something out of sync today. Can't put my finger on it, but...
This causes me to pause and step back. Take a look before you cross the street. Stop before you turn that corner. Something is lurking. Waiting.
The heat of summer is upon us, but that's not what is causing this.
Today is different. Today will be weird. Be cautious.
