Last night five planets lined up
in a straight row, shooting right through the moon about dusk. It was a clear evening, full visibility, everything bright and amazing.
A storm rolled through this morning - lightning and thunder and even some rain. So the streets are wet. Before the storm, the birds were crazy with noise, and now afterward they have taken up their business again. Their business is our business, though we don't recognize that fact as often and as widely as we should.
Along the garage - peonies reach up for the sky. They've shot up three inches since yesterday, some of them.
The wind seems to be from the east. The sky is grey. There is an even-handedness to the morning, however - it's grey, but not severe. Though the weatherman on the radio is promising "hail and damaging winds" later on.
