hmmm... I nearly forgot my password. Guess it *has* been a while, huh?

To be honest, I'm not even sure what to write here any more. I could write that the air is humid and the humidity makes it harder for me to breathe, which in turn makes me more sleepy than ever. But you probably don't care about that.

I could write about how I love driving during that time of day where you need to have both your headlights and your sunglasses on. It's just such an interesting time of day to me. The sun has sunken far enough toward the horizon that long shadows cast across the terra, requiring the use of headlights here and there. And yet, that same sun, not yet breaching the horizon, is so large and real and close that you have to put on your sunglasses and lower your visor lest your retinas char. I imagine it's a funny picture, headlights and sunglasses.

I like when things seem somewhat out of place like that. It's like seeing the moon in the middle of sky in the middle of the day. It doesn't make sense and yet it does. It's out of place, like a beggar clad in silk and pearls. Diamonds in the rough. Thorns on roses. Sunglasses and headlights. It's these sorts of things, these interesting juxtapositions, that really catch my eyes and make me think. I appreciate that.
