  1. Ocean sounds.

  2. He taps me on the exposed shoulder, “You know it’s 7:16?!” I know kid, that’s why I’m still sleeping. Why won’t you let me sleep?

  3. The sun is bright, casting an orange glow on the palm leaves and the chimneys.

  4. How to Read Water.

  5. The Fedex guy says he’s been really careful and creeping up the sidewalks because all the parents are trying to hide the packages from their kids. We laugh.

  6. Three days before Christmas and we’re sitting on the front porch without coats, sun on the face.

  7. I need to get back to the water.

  8. A complete Alice Water’s The Art of Simple Cooking meal: slow-roasted salmon in herb butter, creamed spinach, roasted carrots. Sonoma Coast Vineyards Freestone Hills Pinot Noir.

  9. I think about islands and stones and oceans and ponds. Wave patterns. How reading water is a metaphor for living life.

  10. Up too late playing Wordscapes.
