Scales of the Day #2190

Laurel and her dad stopped by for a few minutes this afternoon, but aside from their brief visit I spent the day entirely alone, bent over my laptop and squishing my brain against code until it finally did what I hoped it would.

Banishing the most meddlesome bugs left me burned out, and I idled for too long before decided to finally step out for some fresh air. I haven’t had time for even that, lately; it feels strange to just amble on the street with no particular goal.

This tree stands in the glow of a lamppost we once risked toppling for the sake of a convoluted slackline setup. In this light the leaves are stripped down to three flat tones, and they suggest that slight uncertainty of reality that you find in dreams sometimes – when things feel just a little off, and you start to doubt that the world is really what it says it is.

So much to do tomorrow, and so much sleep to recoup.
