sunny and hot!!! wow! temps 31 plus
And humid too - just dripping with perspiration. But a glorious day. A little difficult sleeping but we kick off the covers and turn on the overhead fan. At some stage in the night one of us gets up and puts the covers back on. Normally Michael, bless him.
The package finally arrived at 3pm today via UPS from the New York publisher. Spent a few hours working on it. It actually turned out to be relaxing...almost meditative.
Speaking of which, Joan's invited Michael, Bal, Linda, Bethany and me over to her place for tea tomorrow afternoon - and then to do a 'sit'...a meditation. Bal regularly meditates, and Joan does, since she runs the local meditation centre. Michael and I have a sort of quiet prayer and silent time every morning before breakfast - but that lasts about 3 minutes.
Joan might be hearing a lot of snoring. Our mantra.
Watched The Player last night - film from the mid-90's. Loved it when I first watched it, but hated it last night. Turned it off. It just seems so stylized and self-important...self-aware. Too cool for school.
Michael sent his proposal to his New York agent today, only to realize they're closed until September 3rd! Bit of a letdown. Poor guy's been working on it day and night. Still, it means he can at least relax and not check his email every five minutes - though I suspect he still will. Neurotic writers! So glad he's come over to the dark side!
Well, off to sit quietly and sweat some more. Enjoy yourselves.
