and so it begins…

summer in the desert

a switch flipped and I have become nocturnal

I haven’t been home for a couple of days

it’s cooler out there in the rest of the world

all day today I have been sluggish

foggy

weighted

I went for a walk in a total fog

each step a challenge

couldn’t eat

couldn’t do much of anything

I despaired over the to-do list pushed aside

but now the sun is behind the canyon walls

the evening breeze is rustling the leaves of my ash tree

the colors are muted

frogs

crickets

mockingbird

dove

now I am ready to start my day
