It's nice to see the sunshine again after so many days of rain.

Unfortunately, it always reminds me of that Ray Bradbury story I had to read in third grade. Broke my fucking heart, it did.

I guess the point of making us read it was to teach us to be nice to each other. But, all it did for me was to underscore the fact that people, in general, suck.

"I think the sun is a flower that blooms for just one hour."

Let's be extra-nice to one another today!


  1. Blog looks good, Sweetie. Question: The orange background of the title box, is that from the sunset pic you took from Fruitvale BART?

  2. Oh my God, Beej, that story made me cry. When the kid was let out of the closet (hm), and then saw that the sun was gone, and the stunned reactions of the other kids. Oh. I must have read that book millions of times when I was younger.
