Last night was the Bebel Gilberto concert at Central Park, and she was glittery and wonderful. I didn't think I'd be able to bear the heat, but the sultry weather seemed to fit perfectly with Bebel's Brazilian bossa nova. When I got home hours later the streetlights were all out on my street, I assume as an energy-saving measure. It was great, because for the first time ever my apartment was completely dark when I turned out the lights. I lit a candle and took a cold shower and then slept on the couch near the stereo (playing the new sigur ros album) and the air conditioning. Today there is rain.
