adventures in dysthymia

I TRULY love this 'Indian Summer' weather we're experiencing right now her on Peanut Road. Just mild enough to let all the plants come back after the long, hot, DRY summer. The cannas have sent up loads of new stalks and are blooming again. Petunias are blossoming heavily.

It is still dry, however, and I have to water some every day. Some rain may finally fall this week.

And then, alas, it will turn cooler. I do not look forward to winter. I do not like cold weather one bit -- the 95 degree summer days are fine with me (I don't even use air conditioning), assuming it rains some, but I'm just not a winter person.

Oh well, at least I'm still in Florida (even if only about five miles from the Alabama border).

I've got around 400 of my poems formatted and filed now. Loads more to go. One little problem I'm running into is the overlap between the song lyrics and the poetry. Some of these songs are very much poems as well and could stand on their own as such -- that's just the way I write.

And some of the poems I've gone over could very much be songs, if I were of a mind to develop them as such. Which are they? 'Tis a puzzlement!
