I woke up to a rainstorm far off in the east
drove into the most beautiful sunrise I have ever experienced,
had an epic battle with a hoarde of mosquitoes (and lost, might I add –
got bit on my eye and just about every where else you can imagine except my feet),
pried an ether cap off with a broken nail clipper rather heroically,
made a picture for Flannery O’Connor
and had a wicked fight with the wind.
