76 deg ~ yes, it is 1:30 a.m., and the temp is 76 deg...looking at 90's for the highs next week, with one 100 deg day in the forecast
Iowa was its normal, stunning spring/summer self, although some of the fields have had to be replanted due to a late freeze. I got my fill of staring at the neatly combed rows of corns just starting to get a good grip in the dirt. Now, I'm homesafe, the back is on the mend, and I'm planning a poem-a-day write-a-thon starting on Monday, I think.
As for the time of this post, I've been struck by a cruel blast of insomnia, reminiscent of my bout with it in Denver at AWP. However, this time, I'm home in my own bed after days away, I haven't had any caffeine since 6 a.m., and there isn't much to stress about, so I'm not sure who I've offended to deserve such treatment, but I'll gladly perform my penance to get back to sleep!
