...it's damned impressive.

Flight crew and ground crew nailed this one, getting a commercial flight into and out of San Juan *between* sections of Hurricane Irma.

Or, things that I dreamed where I know exactly where the components came from!

It felt like several mini-dreams, almost repeated, but that could have been an illusion and it was one dream where I simply saw the same thing again and again. I was watching Hamlet (yes, we know where THAT's from!), but only the Yorick scene (photo? what photo? *walks off whistling innocently*); but every time it was a different presentation of the skull - different lighting, different skull, and so on. The only one I remember clearly was where the skull was actually a hologram, just hovering in mid-air. But the colours of the lighting were all different (why, hello, Thor: Ragnarok posters...), though they didn't appear in 'rainbow' order. I think the skull-hologram was red.

And then I woke up & went to the loo, and went back to sleep (dreamlessly, as far as I can remember) for another three hours and so woke up late.

Made it to the weekend, even. :)

I am okay, given the circumstances.

Some random shinies:
Homegrown fruit; polygonal interconnecting connecting building toys; play dough and brain putty; kids eating salad; music.

Today, on the second day of kindergarten, because the kids were worried about the forest fire ... we learned how to look through the pictures in books to find relevant information even if the text is too hard, using books on trees and forests, and using this reading strategy, a student located information about redwoods that can survive fires, which my colleague read aloud to the class.

If you're a friend online, or can provide references for a friend, and need a place to crash for a few nights due to climate catastrophes or similar, I have a (small, not-very-accessible, un-air conditioned, but habitable) apartment with my partner, and a floor and an air mattress. You can PM me.

This offer also applied to catastrophes caused by people in the course of daily life as opposed to climate change.

ETA: I am located in Portland, Oregon.

Kindergarteners are amazing and make me smile with their beautiful thoughts and spontaneous deep questions.

Hoping for some rain to wash the air down so we can go outside for recess. ;)
