Perseids

Stay up late. It's chilly, put on a wool sweater. Check.

Check the deck for rabid skunks. None. Check.

Lie (lay?) on the deck and do asanas. Release muscles and intestinal vapors. Check.

Watch for meteors. I saw one! A white streak across the eastern apex. Saw an airplane too, 3 yellow and 1 blinking red light. That was an airplane, right?

More asanas. Then fear of rabid skunks drove me back inside. Also the scrim of clouds which obscured the night sky.

I saw one. A Perseid meteor.
