He wakes up to the smell of coffee and the sound of his boyfriend in the kitchen frying pancakes and bacon. After they are done with breakfast, he looks outside and thinks: “it’s a writing day.”
He types handwritten notes for a few hours then showers. As a reward, he gives himself a walk through Victoria Park.
He stops to eat a bagel on a bench facing the pond. Each tree warmed by autumnal light begs to be photographed. A passing old man watches a young couple kissing in a rowboat.
One day, he realises, he will only have memories.
