Another day...

...zooms down the old Porcelain Speedway.

Weather-wise, it was quite nice. Despite the heat inland, a strong breeze off the ocean kept things relatively cool here. And the late-afternoon clouds were pretty. Won't be that way tomorrow, though...



For me, not so swell a day.

There are lots of things in life that I learn by inference, by reading the tea leaves, so to speak. I have to go by gut reactions. And today, I learned something that distresses me greatly. Not unexpected, and nothing I could do anything about, but unpleasant all the same.

The end of each day is a small death. Some days, the death is larger. Today, dreams I should not have entertained, should have rejected as foolish, impossible and ultimately unsatisfying, have ended.

It's almost dark now. A long night lies ahead.

The end of a day is a death, right, but then the beginning of the next day - well you know what that is...

Very pretty picture and I love the one of the eclipse. I didn't even know there was an eclipse. I'm so informed lately!

Damn. I hope a better dream replaces the one that closed out. One that draws you in without you even knowing it.
I wish that for me as well.
