There has been a hint of moisture in the air tonight. It is not dense enough to call fog, but has a faint scent of it. It will dissipate, I'm sure. This will be another 90 degree day. Summer hangs around like the smell of over-ripe fruit.

Speaking of fruit, I just realized that I had only one casaba this summer, and no watermelon. The prices never dropped to a reasonable level, and the quality of the melons available was surprisingly low. Another reason to be displeased with this year.

I'm having way too many Matthew Arnold moments anymore.

  • Reset Seventeen, Day Fifteen

    Once again I've forgotten when I went to sleep, but I woke up around two o'clock in the morning. Tuesday was quite warm, and I kept the windows open…

  • Reset Seventeen, Day Fourteen

    I don't recall the exact hour, but it was well before midnight Monday, when I felt the sudden need for a nap. I expected it to last until perhaps two…
