it’s been hot. we have several of these not-so-pretty box fans all over the apartment. i’ve been doing a lot of writing these last couple of days, and some hours spent in the studio, all with these fans nearby. it’s not all bad. in fact, i quite enjoy a good heat spell.
the warmth of the last few days here in california have me wrapped in memories of growing up in the heat of florida where the humidity is so dense, it clogs your throat and feels like an actual thing, a force, that invades your space. it’s inescapable.
in other news, i had the best girls nite out since moving here with these lovely ladies. my acquaintances are beginning to feel more like friendships, something that always make my heart lift with joy. i love conversation, cocktails, and pure silly fun with girlfriends. in our silliness, we asked a total stranger what he thought we did for a living. after some thought, he guessed i was “an agitator”, which by the way, is an actual word and it means “troublemaker, rabble-rouser, agent provocateur, demagogue, incendiary; revolutionary, firebrand, rebel, insurgent, subversive; informal disturber.”
rabble-rouser! who knew? when i told john the next day, he sweetly said “oh, man, that’s classic kelly rae!”
i took a break today from daydreaming/emailing/writing/studio-ing and updated my blog sidebar with books/music/upcoming events. i heart blog sidebars.
