365.359 the solstice sky

Well, in some sense, the world is going to end today…

This is likely the last time I’ll take a picture of this particular sky.

I’m moving tomorrow! Just across town, but still a different sky.

And in the Heracleitian sense, the sky is never the same twice, as the clouds and winds and all the stuff that fills what we call ‘sky’ is constantly in motion, but I didn’t mean to open that particular can today.

My luck continues to hold… earlier today, the truck-rental place called to let me know that the truck I reserved 2 weeks ago wouldn’t be ready until some time tomorrow afternoon. I insisted that this was wholly unacceptable, and immediately cancelled my reservation.

30 minutes later, after much scrambling to set up other options (at which I had mostly succeeded, though in a very non-optimal manner), the nice lady called back and told me a magic truck had fallen from the sky and magically landed in their back parking lot, and that they could keep my reservation after all.

I should go buy a lottery ticket.
