JULY 30, 2002

Yesterday the rain dissipated, some heat came on, enough we know it's summer. Cool air moved in during the night and it's cool air coming into the house right now; it's blue sky and sun, morning song.

We have not had enough rain to save lawn and garden. The drought chokes everything yet, despite the occasional spits of moisture. What we've got is what we've got. What do you want? Are you sure? All sunshine makes a desert, they say in the Sahara. All beauty leads to wantonness. What are if we we are not tested? We do not know.

Shadows across the road in the country, like dampness.

A terrible stink of pig manure last evening along Highway E as I came home from work. A faint smell of it remains this morning.

It will be warm again today - a high near 90 degrees.
