I needed that

Just spent a fairly pleasant hour sitting in the darkened corner of the complex, at the gate to the swimming pool that has been locked for the winter.

Monday night when I was doing laundry the darkness was an annoyance, joining forces with a blanket of fall leaves to keep me from knowing where the sidewalks were. Tonight it was a joy -- the perfect spot to sit and watch meteors.

The Geminid shower hit its peak tonight. I counted 16 in a bit over an hour -- would probably have seen many more if I'd driven out away from the city lights, except that these days that takes 20-30 minutes, where it used to take only ten. (Yeah, I know. In some ways I've been spoiled, living in Waco. Still...)

Hmm. It seems LiveJournal has changed up its entry-posting screen...
