I swear to fuck, I brought the Providence weather with me. Last week, Leeds had highs in the 90s˚F. Right now, it's 54˚F here, with a windchill making it feel like 51˚F, with clouds and rain that make me want to go back to bed and hide. We're promised warmer, drier weather for tomorrow afternoon, but we were promised warmer drier weather for this afternoon, too.

Yesterday, I sorted through a box of old papers, pulling out more of my stuff for the John Hay Library. I even found a couple of high-school period poems of which I am not entirely ashamed. I also sorted out an enormous number of short-story manuscripts that my mom wrote in 1970s and 1980s. Kathryn and I read over "In the Flat Field," and it's better than I thought it was, but I didn't write anything new on it.

I had an entry I wanted to make this morning, but this shitty weather has me down. I'll try to write it tomorrow. I will leave you, instead, with this photo of Taco Cat, who is a palindrome.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast

Hey, Taco Cat.

I live in Portland (OR) and it is stiiiilllll chilly and rainy. I was walking the dog earlier and getting soaked by a heavy driving mist and wind, and it occurred to me that I may never dry out.

Rain
It seemed for a while that I was a personal rain god to a former boss of mine. Every time we met it would be raining, no matter what the weather had been the day before. It finished when I left that job so apparently my cosmicly allocated task had been completed, though I never knew what it was.
