It’s finally cooled off a bit here in
, which means temps have dropped all the way down into the lower 90s. Tucson
To cope with the heat I’ve been watching movies about climbing frigid mountain peaks and documentaries about exploring
Antarctica. I’ve also resumed my practice of sleeping during the day and taking advantage of the cooler nighttime temps to…well, not do much at all.
But do I complain? Darn betcha!
The nights, though, have been sweet.
Cooling breezes barely whisper through my open window. Night birds call from the palo verde. In the distance, the plaintive keening of a diesel engine’s horn reminds one of places far away—remote in distance, more so in time.
