“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Subtropical Strange

So something happened about two weeks ago. The temperature dropped twenty degrees in a day and stayed there.

It's blissfully idyllic now here in Houston. I feel the sea air from the tropical coast on my face as I walk to the supermarket. It's about 9.30pm.

I really enjoyed the humidity--no I really did. And this is just extraordinary, this turn in the weather, which I hear is normal.
