  1. Last Harvest

    Last night the temperature here dropped below the freezing point. I covered Penny and Sid but they were not looking so good this morning. So, I picked their remaining tomatoes. I will attempt to ripen them in paper bags on the counter. If that fails, I will be scourging the Net for green tomato recipes.

    Total harvest from two plants this season: 28 lbs. Not too shabby.

    mood: good, rested, a bit hungry & ready to meet the day
    music: The Wanderer by Dion
    the dreams of sobriety are always so much more vivid than those I have otherwise
    I dreamed of baseball practice, ones of a quarter century ago and it was great
    I even felt my body and it was good, I remember the feel of it, being in shape

  3. Before I Collapse

    Sleep has wrapped his arms
    Strangely and ever so strongly

    The unknown

    I fear
    Yes...I am quite afraid

    And very aware

    The truth is always revealed
    In dreams, yet slightly concealed

    For I know it will be a riddle and complex

    Yes, accepted.
    I told you.
    I meant it.

    And now, tonight,
    Two ...

  4. If it is true that you are what you eat, then I am mostly cabbage and rice

    I have been eating a lot of cabbage lately—bok choy and green. I chop it up and sautée it in a little oil in a dutch oven on the stove top. After it caramelizes, I add lots of black pepper and some cubed ham (optional). Then I pour in a little water, cover, and steam it for ten minutes. I eat it over basmati or long grain rice.

  5. The Sun

    Sunday, this morning, I got up before everyone else and jumped on my bike for a quick 30 miles. It was a cool, crisp morning at 60deg but sunny and clear. At mile 17 on the bay trail near Hwy 92, with a beautiful view of the rising sun and the glistening water of the bay, this song comes on.

    I listened to the album version, but this was on youtube, live they did a good job here

    I was wrapped into an incredible feeling of joy that ...
