Yesterday, we had a “derecho,” a kind of storm with extremely high winds I’d never heard of before. And the winds were, indeed, high, my building shaking like an earthquake, and the pictures on twitter were so sad, downed huge, old trees everywhere.
Apparently it pulled roof tiles right off of some town houses, it was so strong.
And today it’s sunny and blue and like it never even happened, like there never was a wind that vicious. Nature is changeable.
Today I’m drinking my coffee as I write, my list of things to do shifting and changing with each moment forward. I am not ready for it to be mid-August, and yet we’re getting there, in these ridiculous days that feel like weeks.
And that is it for me on this Tuesday, onward I go. Have a great day.
