It's as though somebody has invented the perfect hamster wheel, and we're all running around and around and not going anywhere. Except now we have goatloads of stuff, and Asians have goatloads of paper. I wonder how long that can go on? And I wonder if the Asian banks put pressure on the Bush administration to get that new bankruptcy law, so their goatloads of paper won't go bad when the whole thing collapses? The new global economy puzzles the hell out of me.
I'd rather watch the full moon come up than to think about that stuff. I got my wish, and there are clouds softening the moonlight, at least in the east. Directly above, the stars have come out, so when the moon reaches there, it might get very bright, unless the clouds move or thicken. It has warmed up a bit once again, so it's going to be a very nice night to be outdoors. I can still hear locusts in the orchard. There are intermittent breezes, too, and more acorns are falling, and more pine cones as well. I'll be careful not to stand under the trees.
