Lughnasa Waning Harvest Moon
Finalized the Rio plans today. Gonna stay in Ipanema, within a block of the beach. Chose away from the ocean since we will have spent 39 days on it. Plenty. Our Brazil visas are classy, nice pictures, gold striping and good for ten years. A bargain for $180 each.
Dentist today. Regular cleaning. My current dentist, Mahler, retires in two weeks. Two years or so ago his partner, then my dentist, Moghk, retired. The older you live the more the health professionals you’ve counted on begin to leave practice. A bit unsettling. My internist of 20 years moved to Colorado three years ago.
The cloud gray skies around noon today appealed to me. More of the coming inside, writing and research weather that I love.
We’ll miss much of it this year, but we have chosen to cruise during the peak hurricane season. That’s why the prices were so good. I’ve begun paying attention to NOAA.
