Geeks in the making

It's the first Sunday morning of fall: bright, sharp, golden. I have a cup of coffee here on the arm of my Adirondack chair on the porch. Overgrown bamboo protects the neighborhood from the sight of my grubby hair and fluffy bathrobe.

Two little boys are playing in the yard across the street. One of them just said, "I can run through space, and fire. And ice. And lava! I can run through lava! I'm called LavaBoy. This gun has lava in it! Pssshhhhhhh!"

The other little boy shouts, "These clothes are energy fields!"

"Wait! I have an idea! When we're running away from the bad guys? We can just take some of the lava out of our pockets and throw it at 'em." He flings some bits of hydrangea leaves around.

"Hey! You just blew me up. That's not nice."

Imagination - I remember that. Maybe mine will come back when I sleep some more.

It is meant to be spring here, but global warming, or something, has made it feel like summer already for a week or two. Yesterday was mid 30s with hot, dry wind - strong enough for dermabrasion. I stayed inside despite the blue sky (air conditioning, intact skin - two things I like).

Imagination, indeed. And flexibility! Those two boys kept changing the story and making up new rules as they went along. Wish I could still do that.

Hope you get some sleep soon!
