Wed. June 5, 2019 – like grains of sand through an hour glass…

75F and raining.  Probably not getting super hot today.  Yesterday was hot and humid enough for two days.   Sun was out until late, when we got a quick and quiet shower.  The radar maps had us getting rain late in the night and so we have been.  My weather station says we’ve gotten 0.85 inch since midnight.

Did not sleep well last night.  Weird dreams.  Woke dreaming of working for 0.1%-ers in Chicago or some other old and big city.  The gap between the wealthy and the not keeps getting bigger.  Our Lords are not tied to the land, but the serfs still are.  Methinks that sometime soon, we’ll have a lot fewer Lords, but times will be terrible for the serfs too.  Will we see a return of families throwing their daughters out on the water like a lifeline?  Will the nouveau riche scramble to find alliances to save their fortunes through their kids?  If so, the old money will definitely have the edge, what with all those centuries of practice…
