The Red Tree

Asleep Awake

We've reached summer days again when it's really too hot to be inside the house. Mid eighties inside, pushing ninety outside, and I need to be working. But I'm hardly sleeping. The RLS is at me again. I need to be working, but the heat and the poor sleep are conspiring. And here we are already a week through July.

Yesterday, we hid in the dark and air-conditioned sanctuary of a theatre in Warwick and saw The Free State of Jones, which I thought was quite excellent, so the haters can go hang. We stopped by Spooky's parents where we talked about milk snakes and gypsy moths. We drove on down to Moonstone Beach, but the sun was still too high. We watched gulls, cormorants, Piping Plovers, Least Terns, and an osprey. We headed home sometime around 6:30, but it was much too hot to be in the house. Wait. I sorta said that already....
