. Coffee with coconut milk. The coffee tastes burnt.
. The sky turns from rain clouds to mauve to orange to grey streaked with white.
. What is possible today? I remember the pact I made with myself last night.
. I'm on edge. Everyone and everything is getting under my skin. I can't even stand myself.
. A craving for something simple and healthy. I stop at the store and the air conditioning feels amazing. Lamb shoulder chops, a zucchini, an onion. When was the last time I had lamb?
. The veg gets chopped and goes on the burner first. Then the meat. The oil pops. Salt, pepper, oregano. I dig up an old lemon wedge from the fridge and squeeze it over everything. I let the chop rest while I type this.
. Wild and Scenic
. Opossums are funny when they run.
