July 10, 2008


After work, Azur and I went down to Gigantic Big Rock here in Seattle.
We were surprised no one was climbing, but maybe the schist was too
hot on this blazing sunny afternoon. The temperature difference between
sun and shade is remarkable, kind of like on the moon. I grew up with humid
summers on Long Island where there was no escaping the heat. On the moon,
the difference between sun and shade is 500 degrees (Fahrenheit). Alcohol
freezes at zero degrees F and boils at 100. That much is true. There are big
rocks in Seattle, but size is always relative. Was this little dog looking for its
master? It's been a while since anyone has heard from Alasdair.
