I have that nagging feeling that I've forgotten something. Given my absent mindedness, it's a wonder I don't have that feeling all the time, but I only get it now and then. I worry about it for a while, and try to figure out what it is that I've forgotten, and then I forget about it. Once in a while, I actually remember something that I've forgotten, but, by that time, it's usually too late to do anything about it. So I guess I might as well just forget it.

I am hoping that today will turn out to have been the hottest day of August. It is 102F. It would be nice to know that, from now on, summer's decline into cool autumn will be noticeable. The oaks have begun to drop their acorns, and a few minutes ago I heard the first pine cone crash to earth from one of the nearby ponderosas. When days grow shorter, it is best that they grow cooler, as well. The evenings will soon be to short for walking, and I would like to return to afternoon walks. This will not happen while, as today, when I walk out my front door I am struck by a wall of heat that bakes energy out of me immediately, leaving only enough for me to me to move directly to the shade of the mulberry tree. Even there, I feel as though I were at the bottom of a pool of heat, sunk in lassitude.

    Out into the heat and glare to fetch comestibles I went, and returned largely intact and with most of what I set out to find, but to my displeasure…

  • Reset Nineteen, Day Thirty-Nine

    Arrangements have been made for shopping tomorrow (well, today, Monday,) if I can wake up and get ready in time. I'd have been up by one o'clock…
