Planning for mid and late summer musical frolics...

So hot! At 1am! Welcome to the new world climate order.

Many things afoot in the underbrush...

1. It's the ending of a long time.
2. It's the beginning, or pre-beginning, of a new time.
3. We're gonna record an album, by gum!
4. Will I be able to travel in the future (not "into" the future, merely "in" the future)?
5. The way to be is in some way obvious, but having the wherewithal to take necessary leaps is a challenge. There is no easy way.
6. Many more things.

Day tripping at St. Peter's.

One-lane town with charm. Get out of the car. Walk to the bakery. Order sandwiches. Sit on the deck. Look at the other day trippers picking about the boulders. Walk to the boulders and the stream. Pick gingerly about the boulders and the stream. Get an ice cream. Keep it from dripping over the side so your finger don't sticky. Go back to the car. Drive around the bucolic surrounderings. Anticipate urban encroachments the closer you get. Pull in back at your ranch with the feeling of accomplishment, a little tired and sleepy.

All in all, it's what happened.
Looking down at the other day trippers, streaming it. Chinese nuclear family with athletically fashionable mom and delicate son, less fashionable dad (gramps?), and American family, dad with big cowboy hat, t-shirt, and flip-flops.
Little world, floating up from the garden.
That's right, America. Get with program.

Spirits in the material world.
Don't walk this way.
Purple is the color of my true love's door.

Ka'ahumanu surveying her shopping mall, probably wondering what the King will get her from Victoria's Secret, directly across.
Surfing Goat!
Another beautiful evening sky.

Hibiscus fountain.

Good weather today, starting angry/grumpy but becoming happy and relaxed as we made the entire, bumpy round (bumpy after grumpy), looking for a Hawaiian man who knew the gibbons, via the waitress (who gifted us a kama'aina price for the Coke float), driving past the aviator without noticing, stopping for ice cream bananas, and coming up on ranch rain at the end, discovering Sgt. Pepper and the mechanical nosehair clipper waiting, and the combo washer/dryer, shaking the house.

A good day.
