Second time in 4 years. A woman I knew died this way, a big blond pleasant nurse: Ellie P.

I wanted to check for water in the basement after a night of rain. First thing I did after getting up, stepped on the cellar stairs. Slid, bumped, and scraped all the way down in a heightened awareness of vision and sensation. Tried to grab, tried to stop, held my head up as sights blurred. Hit bottom, ran back up and took some homeopathic arnica. Did self-Reiki.

Inspected and bandaged abrasions. Wondered how long it would take to be found if... you know.

The humidity was a little high, turned on the dehumidifier. Welcome, summer.
