Dazed ‘n Amazed

How can we do anything but stand around looking up with weather like this? This is the second summer in a row that we’ve had day after warm sunny day in the provinces north of Boston. It feels so …unchanging; it feels like we bought the warranty.

I know it might be inside my head merely. My blogger pal Brian wrote  with great appreciation about the full moon which I guess I must have missed somehow. I keep looking up at skies that seem completely unchanged night after night, the stars looking as if they were painted onto the inside of that inverted teacup the ancient Jews pictured sits up there sheltering us.

I mean I know Earth is doing its little pirouette around the sun and the summer is waning. The crickets announced it when they tuned up last week. Most years it’s August before they show up but I heard my first one last Wednesday the 27th of July so there you are.

They’re just earlier, like the way spring comes sooner these days; like the way little girls are developing earlier.  I know what does it: it’s hormones in the chicken am I wrong? Someone’s feeding estrogen to the crickets deny it if you can.. and here’s one other true thing unchanging throughout recorded history: a really good bra is any girl’s best friend, whatever her age or shape.

  1. Thanks, Blogger Pal, for the mention and the link!
    But you’re going to get me in trouble with the astronomers.

    To re-state what I wrote in my comment the other day:

    Don’t worry; you didn’t miss the moon on Sat. I wrote that on the 16th, the day after the full moon. But it was very cool. I actually was up on that deck writing and there actually was a Beer Pong game in progress. However, the Ax Murder was made up.

    I think he was more of a strangler.

    1. yeah I saw that but I had already written the piece and didn’t get ONE second yesterday to go back and make the emendation. will do that today I hope.

      never met a strangler – oh oops except for the one I lived with briefly as a child.

      II do meet a lot of sex offenders. (most women do poll those girl pals of yours.)

      1. The fix worked out well. Cept you dropped a period…bygones.

        You didn’t have to change it. I was willing to take the hit from the astronomers in the name of creative license.

        Astronomers, such an arrogant bunch with their big fancy telescopes and heads in the stars all the time. And a cheaper bunch you won’t find. Off they run to name a new planet as soon as the lunch check arrives….
