The Oregon State Beavers won the College World Series! Michael and Max watched the game.
It has been hot here. Too hot to go running.
But it cooled down tonight around nine - finally. Cool enough to take the dogs for a walk, anyway. The lavender is in bloom in Portland! I noticed it everywhere tonight - and in my own backyard.
I have been reading Lug Your Careless Body Out of the Careful Dusk by Joshua Marie Wilkerson and enjoying it very much! And he will have poems in the new Caffeine Destiny, hooray.
The words on the woman in the lower left hand corner that can't be read very well here are:
The poetry of earth is never dead:
When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,
And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run
From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead;
by John Keats, from On the Grasshopper and the Cricket.
