It's Not That There Haven't Been Sun Breaks

On the whole, it's been dull and gray and/or rainy for weeks. This is a good thing, oh yes water so glad you're here yes.

Certainly the situation in the rest of the country is frightening.

So not complaining. But every time a bit of blue appeared in the sky or out the window, my life happened to be organized wrong to take advantage. And no sooner were the prayer flags disentangled again than along came more wind, more rain.

The log ship Astoria Bay is loading down at the T-pier. Yesterday afternoon they were working hard, two loaders, four cranes, two trucks at once on the pier, longshoreman waving and shouting in the dull gray light.

Today it's blue out. Cue the tambourines and joyful dancing, oh yeah.
