It is 7:30.
It is still fairly light out -- light enough to still be playing catch, but getting dim enough to make it a little dicey.
A breeze is blowing through the magnolia, and in my window.
My dog is here. And a glass of wine.
It makes me not mind the fact that I have to be sitting here reading about the ecology of the microbes in our intestines.*
*Did you know that we are born germ-free & inherit most of the microbes in our gut from our mothers on our way out? That cesarian babies miss out on some of those bacteria? Me neither. Fascinating stuff.
