Turning

when I was turning 19
I remember thinking
wow my last year as a teenager...
there were things that needed to be done
I have no idea what it was
probably a new board
but now
having entered into
my last of my 50's decade
what is left to do?

Pema Chodron says,
"Could it be that whether we are awake or asleep,
we are simply moving from one dreamlike state to another?"

perhaps

quite possibly true

so this moment
I sita
listening to the birds chirping
the cat snoring
I sit
dreaming...

The boat weather is gone


replaced with a
micro climate
hovering over
a thin strip of land
between
a desert
and a large
ocean

this morning
low clouds
muffle the
freeway
and the cat's purr
completes
with the early
birds
as the loudest
sound
around

Summertime



It's like living on a boat
not the "let's have rum drinks while sitting on the fan tale and complain about docking fees"
living on a boat
fantasy
but the real life
everything I own is wet and mouldy
reality

I feel like Opus in Bloom County
a penguin that has a chronic personal moisture issues
but I digress..

the cat
he hates the rain
any kind of moisture really
he hates each individual drop

right now
he has been out doing his morning routine
checking the perimeter for
who knows what
and now his tail is wet
and of course
this is my fault
because
as his staff
I exist only
to do his
bidding
or I get a quick claw
to my mouldy leg

Summertime and the livin' is easy

Well that was different


more rain in two days in July
than in most of the years "rainy season"
for a while
in some sort of
heat stroke / mojito delirium
I thought the east coast and west coast
had been swapped
I ran down to the beach
for some sort of swellular confirmation
but the results were inconclusive...
so we just waited it out
with just netflix and a fan
on the plus side
my lawn got watered
local officials have subsequently
issued a warrant out for hurricane Dolores
for violation of the strict no water ordinances....
as far as vacations go
I've had worse
but I think
I really don't like
South Florida...
