Details of the Day: September 27

– sun shining directly on porch, looks inviting but too hot to sit

– sky looks like fall, air feels like summer

– pangs for the ocean and autumn in New England

– talked with mom about Steinbeck, Vonnegut, dragonflies, eugenics and the Jim Crow South

– leftover risotto for lunch + a plum that feels too firm but tastes ripe

– snapdragons dying on the table

– Library books from last week’s trip stacked like a brag: Black Aperture by Matt Rasmussen, Leaving the Atocha Station by Ben Lerner, The Artist’s Reality by Rothko, U. S. ! by Chris Bachelder, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by Eliot & This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett

– reading a little of everything + Kelin Loe’s These are the Gloria Stories

– pre- meeting-an-old-friend-for-coffee nerves

– wearing favorite dress like security blanket

– ran out of polish remover, one hot pink toe
