Summer Solstice Moon
Kate and I watched an old Sherlock Holmes movie, Murder by Decree, with a young Christopher Plummer as Holmes and James Mason as Watson. Mason yes. Plummer, unfortunately, no. Not brooding or angular enough. Basil Rathbone is better.
While watching we plucked oregano leaves for the dryer. Kate has already frozen rhubarb and several cups of strawberries. The harvest is well underway and will continue at one level or another through the latter part of September.
In the aches and pains department: knee, bad last year, much improved, rarely gives problems. back, normal now, after a very painful late April and May. left shoulder, vast improvement, not better, but I can see return to normalcy. and now, ta dah, just as the left shoulder has begun to heal, the right elbow. Ouch. Some form of tendinitis, I’m sure. It seems as if there is a rhythmic pattern here: knee, back, shoulder, elbow. A concrete, perhaps a skeletal poem.
