from its own substance into another
there was a bruise-colored sunset over the park-and-ride, and then the darkness folded in around the streetlights. i sat in the driver's seat with the windows down until it started to rain.

reading: strange as this weather has been, by ann pancake. this is a lucid and well-crafted first novel. dialect is treated with a light hand, and the characters negotiate a delicate balance between being people with voices and placeholders for ideas.
working on: being a person. why does this take so much work, anyway?
in the garden: the first yellow crocuses are up and blooming.
