Dawn (Blue Light)

Classes are starting at most schools, and students are presences again in San Francisco. Even at this dawn hour, groups of them come thumping down the sidewalks, out for their early runs, laughing and chattering as they go. For a couple of weeks they will overlap with groups of glamorous Asian and European tourists (though tourists are too sensible to be out so early). Then gradually the tourists will diminish in numbers – until next year.
