There are things that happen to you when you live here that are sort of ill-defined moments that are germane to living here, only.
Walking back from the bus stop I overhear the Bahamian woman talking to her son about someone having the third-eye. At the same time I look down at the street and see a clear blue marble and it startles me. I am simutaneously compelled and afraid to pick it up. I don't.
Standing in my office parking lot a heron the size of a motorcycle lands about 3 feet from me, then darts forward for a lizard. I stand watching the lump go down it's skinny neck. It took 5 or 6 swallows, then flew away.
I wore a khaki suit, t-shirt and flip-flops to a company business breakfast meeting at which we announced a merger to the employees being merged. I was dressed up.

returning to normal, in a relative way.

Today I nearly posted 2 paragraphs on my having figuring out why I am always falling while coming out of the bathroom. I re-read it and it really is a had-to-be-there thing. Also, my husband was there, still not interested.
So instead I will say that my new goal is to work the word "bullhonkey"into a conversation.

new vote

I watched the live "West Wing" tonight and coudn't stop protesting against the imaginary crap. Except that I went to vote and can't hanle the banwitdth.
I think it's a good thing. More on this later.
