Oh my, I've been loving this weather. Coastal eddy can come and stay for the entire summer. These cool mornings are divine, and the air smells so sweet.
Speaking of fragrances, the other night I was held hostage in my car for nearly 40 minutes because there was a huge skunk inspecting my front yard and I didn't dare open the door. I sure as heck didn't want to frighten him.
While I was thumping my fingers on the steering wheel, he was leisurely sniffing the flowers. He then squeezed himself under the front gate and continued his property inspection in my front courtyard. I guess he then decided that the grass was greener on the other side of the fence because he slowly ambled off to my neighbors' yard. One thing for sure is that he wasn't in any hurry. It was a lesson in patience for me.
I — along with about 1,500 other people — experienced an exciting and eclectic evening of music on the Caltech campus last week by the musicians of Muse/ique, conducted by Rachael Worby.
