Art & Life

Wednesday. Lights out some time after nine to get an uneven night's rest, but awakening at six-fifteen, right on target. Good. Up and out the door on an overcast morning to walk with watering eyes to breakfast, leaving at six forty-five and arriving at five to seven. Ten minutes. OK, it takes ten minutes to walk to breakfast, my assumption all along.

You've never bothered to check? How long have you been walking to breakfast?

The oatmeal, toast and coffee over the papers, a haircut appointment later today at eleven. I'd looked up how to back off the exposure on the V1 camera yesterday (finally), but the overcast sky and lack of any real contrast meant there was no way to properly test it and so we'll put it off for another brighter morning. Somewhat cumbersome setting it, though, much easier and quicker on the bigger DSLR's.

Babble, babble.

It's all babble, really, once all is said and done.

Later. A walk down to the stop to wait on a bus for four minutes to head to the City Center haircut appointment, another four minute wait for a bus home when I was finished. I can handle that. I did carry a camera with me in the backpack, but never took it out. Didn't surprise me, unfortunately, but otherwise a good way to start an afternoon.

Nothing on Law & Order I haven't seen before and really don't need to see again and so went with the various news programs (the U.S. Attorney General is upset with our migrant protections) and a nap with maybe that bath later that I talked about taking yesterday.

Evening. Nothing on television and so to bed early. Earlier and earlier seems to be the program.
