The sun has moved across the sky -

Of course, we and the earth have turned, but it certainly looks like the sun has moved across the sky, and note, there is a sun today with which to notice movement. Last night, there were stars, and a not-yet risen moon when I looked. The rain brought the sky tappingly close, and it is fun to have a place for the eyes to pull out and rest. My eyes right now feel like clouds, floating on waves in the sky.

I noticed today how much a helicopter blade tears up the air. I'm not sure how healthy it is for the air, and when I feel better plan to protest helicopters flying over Muir Woods for tours. Trees need their rest and sleep, like me.

For example, today, I sat down with a book and fell asleep for three hours. I had a deep dream of driving in mud, fog, and darkness. I could not see where I was going. Occasionally I got a glimpse, but I found myself realizing I would just have to trust. The rain was pouring down in the dream, and there was no way to get off the curving road. I just had to keep going. Hmmmm! Sounds like life, so I will keep navigating the way I was in the dream, on trust, the only way to go.

The book I am reading, which really is good enough, in normal times, not to put me to sleep is Rebecca Solnit's "wanderlust - A History of Walking." I recommend it. She says, "Exploring the world is one of the best ways of exploring the mind, and walking travels both terrains." Here is to that!! Enjoy!!
