☼ ○ ▬
Riding my bike down at the oceanfront near 32nd Street. I look up at the southern sky and discover a blood red moon hanging low in the horizon. All of a sudden I hear a crack like a firework (as if someone threw a Molotov cocktail) and one of the new developments on the corner catches on fire. In seconds the whole building is engulfed in flames. I can feel the heat on my face as I try to retreat to a safe distance on Laskin Road. It all feels so real and destructive.

Waking up around 9 a.m. to having sex with Ana in her bed.
Greek Yogurt with Peaches, Chia Seeds, and Almond Milk. Iced Coffee with Almond Milk.
Scrambled Eggs. Naan Bread with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese. Sweet Potato Corn Tortilla Chips with Avocado and Hummus. Honey Green Tea.
Teaching lessons at Music Makers.
Going to the Great Neck Rec with Ana. Playing adult basketball. Tough games tonight.
Back home. Ana cooks us dinner: Quinoa with Zucchini, Squash, Carrots, Kale, Red Onions, Black Beans, and Parmesan Cheese. We share our labor with Joy, the Chinese couch surfer. She's a bit disappointed cause she got fired today at her Sweet Frog job. I feel bad for her. We also came to a house decision that she can't live here for the whole summer cause Stacy isn't interested in sharing the living room space. But we all like Joy. Sometimes her English isn't always comprehensible but she is very open minded and interested in our American culture.
Resigning to my room. Tending to the rash on my arm with a bentonite clay, oatmeal, and apple cider vinegar poultice. And massaging argan oil into my scalp. Stretching my joints and ankles.
Finishing the Transformers movie. Dumb dialogue and sort of dumb plot but I can't resist watching the coolest machines from my childhood.
Sleep 3:30 a.m.
