small red square Feeling tentative, transitional - as if waiting for something, but nothing's on the schedule. For some reason those deja vu feelings dredge up that coldish night when I was new to Adams-Morgan in DC. From our place over on Biltmore Street I'd walked a couple blocks to this smallish restaurant in a townhouse, on the second floor, where they served me a fish full of bones which I ate while reading Christine by Steven King.

When I got back, U had returned from work and was parked tube-side in his Mission chair, with a six-pack, per his usual custom. This was in that serene time, pre-quava, pre-cat, pre-Boris.

small purple square Made a Temari ball this afternoon, while listening to big-band swing music. I learned this skill from a nisei in Torrance in 1990, after I'd seen them in the castle town of Matsumoto. This is the pattern I call "Olympic" - the one I made was almost all purple. Also repaired a flat bicycle tire, rear wheel - a thorn was the puncturing agent.
