Back to the Grind
Today's favorite of the Dirk and Company photos is the one above. Graham with a massive mat quiver, deciding which brush to choose this particular Cotton's morning.
The neighbors rolling by on their groovy Schwinn Collegiate with kid carrier up front and dog side cars
The mat meet is slowly retreating in the rear view mirror of my awareness it's nice to get back into the little bubble I call my life.
Picked up a great book from the library, Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town by Cory Doctorow. If you are familiar with Doctorow's SF writing you know he is busier that ten normal people and in addition to cranking out SF at an alarming pace, he is very active in the intellectual property debate, co -edits the blog Boing-Boing and probably donates blood twice a week while. Generally I hate people like that but the writing is so good I let it slide. Down and out in the Magic Kingdom is good too.
The Queen of the Night or night blooming Cereus went off last night. The flowers begin to open around dusk and are done by early morning. The high point of the summer garden although the sunflowers and tomatoes would beg to differ...
One more thing
Looking at the video of the mat meet yesterday I was stoked we caught it in all it's down the line, speed run glory. For the next one let's go somewhere hollow. Just something to think about.
