I made a stupid mistake on my taxes and had to do them almost all over. One of my cats is sick, which calls for much mopping and cleaning, and a trip to the vet. Two separate cloudbursts yesterday with thunder and lightening. A trip to the emergency room. Several calls from friendly computer services in the far off Middle East who were eager to help with my computer problems. Other than that, April Fool’s Day seems somewhat ongoing. What is it about April anyway? Sorry about the light blogging. I will aim for more informative brilliance.
APRIL is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
A little life with dried tubers.

Sorry about the light blogging. I’ve been down with headaches. Apparently some mixture of new glasses and the computer screen, that’s not working. I’ll try to catch up, there’s so much to write about, and so much going on that is hard to understand.

Great noisy plops on the roof as the snow falls out of the trees. Unfortunately it got our internet connection and I have been offline, sentenced to catch up on my reading, which is welcome, but frustrating. It’s somewhat appalling to realize how dependent I’ve become on the internet.

Here it is, pouring into the ocean in a spectacular stream.and here is a report from the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory showing the collapse of the cliff at Kamokuna in all of its stages. Fascinating. Probably more than you ever wanted to know about a a Hawaiian volcano that you may never see. Beautiful but scary pictures and a clear explanation of what has happened. A great geology lesson.
