The air feels heavy tonight. The day was miserably hot, and grew a bit hazy as afternoon wore on. I stayed indoors most of the day, only venturing out to get some beer and orange juice from CVS about half past seven. It was still terribly hot then, and I tried to stay in the shade wherever it was available, but could still feel the heat of the pavement radiating upward. When I got home I opened a bottle of beer and sat in the shaded back yard and watched the sky turn dark and listened as the crickets began to chirp. None of it felt quite real. Great heat seems to drain the world of its plausibility.
While sitting outside I tried thinking, but failed. I came back in to think in air conditioned comfort and failed again. Thought is not on the program today it appears. In fact it hasn't been for several days.
I keep nodding off. I should go to sleep. My brain isn't functioning anyway. I hope tomorrow (today) isn't as exhausting as today (yesterday) was.
