we survived today. and honestly, at times i was a little worried what might happen. it was so very extreme. if i lit a match maybe the world would have exploded. we woke to find that our aircooling had decided to die. how funny is that. not very ... luckily after some phone calls to many people unwilling to come fix it, and fair enough, we managed to bandaid it well enough to work for today. my friend, my garden is so battered by the sun and hot wind it hurts to look at it too closely. and at the same time i see even more beauty.
