Sunday morning

In a mostly unprecedented juxtaposition of events, I am a) up b) about and c) online at the corner café d) before 7:30 on a Sunday morning. I actually preceded the café owner here and had to wait for him to come and open the caffeine tap.

Caffeination in progress, I proceed to block out NPR's Weekend Edition with earphones and meditation music, because no news is my default position of late (though I couldn't look away from the Palin tweakfest the other day). I'm struggling with an article about point of view for meta_writer's "Back to Basics" series. I have a profound and almost instinctive understanding of POV in fiction, but breaking that down into a short essay has kicked my ass.

Last night's neighborhood gunpowder extravaganza left me in only a moderate state of overactivation (talk about triggers, geez!) despite someone on the block deciding that our little street was a fine place for all the fireworks to go off. I worry about the animals on the gunpowder holidays, but Sam and Dean the stray cats appeared on my porch this morning on schedule.

It is, as they say, gonna be a hot one. Back to POV.

Between 10 and midnight last night, I wasn't sure if I was in New Haven or Kosovo. OTOH, this is not an uncommon occurrence.

I'm glad that Sam and Dean are okay... heh.

Land of the free, home of the brave, etc. I guess I can think of worse uses for gunpowder. But I'm always glad when it's over.

Do you mean a college town is frequently raucous? Or is it more violent there than I realize?

There are parts of town that are less nice than other parts of town, is all I'm saying. My part of town is not bad per se, but someone did get shot in the hand not two blocks from my apartment last summer. (She didn't want to give up her purse to the mugger.)
