This heat is exhausting and relentless. I've resorted to freezing pans of water and placing them in front of the fan, a sort of air conditioning. The air lacks so much water here that everything dries within a couple hours, unlike in Kansas City where silkscreen filler was always an overnight deal. 

School has such a force on society, the energy in the city has become charged and more eager. I am grateful because more opportunities have begun opening up for me (I do dread Mercury's retrograde in a couple weeks...). 

A couple days ago the heat swelled into heightened anger, and I drove us to the beach. A rock chipped my windshield on the way, but I recieved two phone calls I was awaiting. Strange that this pace of life also demands interlude.
