The outside is all shades of white. Sky and water are delineated a shift in color temperature. The air carries a warm pink, the water, a slight green grey. Sky haze encapsulates land, housing strips, the pattern of triangle roof and rectangle window. Status, size, and finish level of homes are obscured by weather. Climate is a great equalizer. Watched a show on refrigeration last night- and the air conditioner was blamed for driving people from common social places (breezy porches in the southern heat) to solitary coled indoors. While I am hermetic, I feel the error of indoor isolation. Enduring severe weather with neighbors, brings unavoidable unity. Weather reminds me that human control over nature is a temporary illusion.
