Here In Oakland

Art & Life


September 27, 2016


Tuesday. It was warm last night and it took some time to get to sleep. Didn't watch anything on the tablet, nothing I wanted to listen to on the radio, I'd heard enough about the debate after having watched the debate, but finally fell into an uneven night's oblivion, awakening at ten after six. Left the window and sliding glass balcony door open heading out to breakfast, as it would still remain cool while at breakfast, but closed them when I got home.

Didn't wear a light jacket while walking to breakfast, but it was still almost too warm under the sun while walking home in the light weight long sleeved shirt. But what the hell, they're saying we'll get some sea breeze in the afternoon. At least they were saying that yesterday. Sooner than later please.

Later. Another too warm for me day and so stayed inside in front of the fan, a brief walk around noon to the lake and then back in a t-shirt. Not too over the top, but I was getting too warm without any thought of a place I might like to go and so back to the apartment.

I recently cut back on the pain meds I usually take in the mornings, cutting the dose in half without any apparent increase in sinus-upper palate discomfort. We'll continue through this coming week. Best to get to the point I can take them only occasionally when it flares up. Not sure what side effects I might be experiencing, they really don't list many, but you never know until you've stopped. I would guess.

Some time on the tablet and some time on the guitar while listening to too much news. Whiling away another afternoon, here in Oakland.

Evening. Did talk with the sister. My birthday card arrived a day late Monday. Ah, well.

The bedroom windows and balcony door are open wide, the temperature down into the low seventies, they're saying it will go down to fifty-seven tonight and up into the low seventies tomorrow. Over twenty degrees cooler, which is nice. Welcome to the left coast in a shifting climate.

Nothing on television I can see, Charlie Rose discussing (what else?) the debate at eight and so to bed on another quite warm, wish it were cooler, evening.

The photo up top was taken Sunday at the Folsom Street Fest in San Francisco with a Nikon D4s mounted with a 24-70mm f 2.8 G Nikkor lens.
