A crack in the world

Our world. The ground is so dry that cracks like these are appearing in the dirt road out back. It's probably just a surface phenomenon, but they look ominous nonetheless. And there is still no rain in the immediate forecast.

The cracks will disappear when the rain comes back and the ground expands again.

I grilled eggplant on Tuesday for a gratin dish that Ken made. Very tasty. And we're planning to grill something (we're still trying to decide what) for lunch today. Friday is supposed to feel downright hot again. Oh well. The rain will come back soon enough. Then we'll complain about that for a while.


  1. Haa haa!

    Hot here, too-- high of 93° F expected here today, and highs in the mid to upper 80s all week. October!

  2. judy, wow, is that normal?

    mitch, I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a crack in the road.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
