the only earth?

sugared up Sunday

I just spent the past few hours reading and eating carrot cake. toward the end it was more doodling, drinking chai, and staring off into the middle distance. it's my favorite distance for staring purposes. but I finished everything I was supposed to read. I even used a highlighter and made pages of notes. that always makes me feel more productive -- the scribbling on a blank page.

I wanted to give my leftover cake to a dog, but thought that might be strange.

on the way home, I discovered that the weather had taken a sharp turn toward the very cold. I’m glad I decided that shorts were inappropriate before I went out.
