Driving away from smoky Eugene where I woke up with a headache. 84 east is closed from another fire and there's ash in the air when I stop for gas. Hoping we get a good rain soon. It's a panicky feeling when you can't trust the air to be good for you.
The view from Mom and Dad's driveway. Muggy Midwest summer. Huge sky. Corn on the cob. Lighting bugs, stars, meteors, distant fireworks lighting up the night sky. Always seeking to live as intensely as possible, while still paying attention.
