animal sides and such

with La Creep last night

I woke up early for a Saturday, around 7am, for no particular reason.  I felt on edge, my heart racing a bit and my senses were hyper-aware. The night had been humid and I opened up the balcony door but for once, no hummingbirds were swooping around the feeder or salvias.  I sat for a minute wondering why I was so wide-awake since last night I imbibed some.  I made a cup of coffee and sat down and all of a sudden the entire entire apartment jolted with a resonating bang.  I leapt to the window to see if a car had struck my building.  A neighbor looked up from his bike.  I heard La Creep stirring from where she slept in the guest room.  Was that an earthquake?  I called out.  Yes she said. Maybe my little recent adventures in meditation have tuned my senses into a different frequency. Or, maybe the itty-bitty hangover required I rise early to hydrate. As soon as the little 4.0 tremor passed (it was off the coast of Coronado, just about four miles away) I fell back asleep for another three hours. I like earthquakes, little ones at least.

Summer is summer, breathing a heavy breath of humidity that is not really normal in this irrigated desert.  The sky is that electric blue that promises the day will be a scorcher.  I have the fans going and hope to get out of the house for an outdoor adventure.  I'm not sure its yet warm enough for the a/c.  A little more writhing this morning then I'll reward myself by digging to the pint of Phish Food in the freezer.  Mmmmm.
