We can speak of neglect. A lack of proper attentiveness. Stagnation. Everything is connected.
This weekend I went over to Emma's to hang out for a bit. There was also a gathering at Jen and Alan's but I didn't go. Stagnation creeping int other things. Felt bad.
Stayed up too late last night. Read a bit. Tried to stay off the cell phone. I need the quiet.
There is a hurricane, Hurricane Rosa, whose remnants brought rain last night. I opened the front door and the dogs sat and looked out. Watch dogs, watching and watching. Need to build a little porch for them to sit out when the weather's cool. Maybe I'll sit on the porch as well and cast a baleful eye at all who pass.
