a/c guys with a big crane & a big truck hauled out the old & hauled in the new unit... they've been working all day in the hot sun... just for me & the cat... & i appreciate it... i'm actually getting used to the warmth up here... but it's still a... mental unravelling... partly since i can't sit in my reading chair cuz it's just too damn hot... so i sit on the floor which reminds me it needs a vacuum soon... all these electrical needs...

the new unit is about ten feet tall... completely blocking the window of the room outside of which it... stands

we went to the movies... hoping to see Crash... but we got the times all wrong... theater wasn't even open yet... times int he paper were for friday and beyond... o well... headed over to b&n... books & coffee... not a bad substitute... & we got to talk a bit too...

just now i brought the cat downstairs for an hour or so... she found a cool marble window ledge & we watched the garden grow for awhile...

looked for about ninety seconds this afternoon like we'd have a good thunder boomer rushing through with accompanying temp drop... no such thing... it blew... then it stopped blowing... not so cool...

the cat is coping by stretching out on the (relatively) cool tile in one of my closets... jay's visiting... we're hoping to see a movie tomorrow... i wonder what he will pick... since nothing current chills my juice...

so... you see those few words i appended to my link to s vincent's fine new "sappho" poems... i really agonized over them... howso? whyso? some can post reams of attentive insightful (evaluative?) thoughts on the work of others... but i come to see that i hate it... i have the hardest time saying something about what others have done... beyond "i like it" & the sophmoronical "way cool dude"... i think i fear getting it wrong ... these thoughts always reveal more of the speaking/writing self than they do of the one spoken or written about... i fear they reveal me to be... a fairly dense fellow... a pretender... kind of clunky out here in his own private midwest... (i find this an odd phobia for an old high school teacher to have... face it... i'm just wrong... in so many ways) ...

end stupid angsty moment... must be the H E A T in this room
