the only earth?

this is it.

The sun was in my eyes on the way to class this morning. This sort of makes up for the being up before eight am and waking up before my alarm part of the day.

On the way to the bus, I notice dramatic shifts in temperature based on whether I'm in the sun or shade. It is like my own private Mercury.

I notice some other things while walking: A dog riding in a pickup truck doesn't put his head out the window because it would be too cold -- for both dog and driver. A woman is walking with a paperback book directly in front of her eyes to keep the sun away. A guy makes it across the street in front of an oncoming bus without really hurrying. The wind makes a mess of my hair. My bus pulling away, but another one is coming.

On the bus: A visually-impaired man is completely flipping out.

Now: the sky is still blue. My fingers are cold. I have no attention span.
