Spring Idleness

It is a quiet and idle spring day, with not much going on. But these days with not much going on is precisely when I have the most space to think and time to set those thoughts down.

I started watching the new Fallout show last week and watched the second episode today. I'm not one for binging TV shows. I'm also a pretty poor critic, so I'll refrain from saying much about it save that it is keeping me reasonably well entertained, and also that it seems to be a very foot-hostile show, with two characters receiving injuries to their lower extremities in as many episodes. I think when I watch the third episode, I'm going to be preoccupied wondering who will be hobbling by the end.

A question to those of you who have dogs: the view noticed them look up much? The sky is to me an interesting place, and I've certainly spent a fair bit of time with my neck craned at the clouds. But I've never noticed my dog look up other than to see if a squirrel is in a tree. Dogs' vision is different from ours, of course, but there is plenty of interest in the shapes of the clouds and in the quality of the light, things that I imagine they can see as well as we can, not just in the colors up there. I am attempting to write a poem about this, but so far have not been able to come up with anything I'm satisfied with.

Well, I should be going now. I'm making pizza for dinner tonight, and I need to get the things ready for that. Cheers!
