Indian Summer

Tomorrow is the full moon. I went for a moonlit walk. It was a warm night. Went down to the little pier at the complex, sat on the bench looking at the stars. The more you look, the more stars you can see. The lagoon was perfectly serene, a mirror of night. Everything glowing in moonlight. The airplanes flying down to SFO. Middle eastern music across the lagoon. Lights on in people's homes. Indian summer bidding farewell.

Went home earlier. The first time going to my room seems like going back to a child's room.

I used to take midnight moonlight walks at Stanford. Somehow the sky glowed a lovely purple over there.

Took a walk before the sunset too. Sunset at home.
