Ah, sunrise! Not so rosy as an eastern Sierra morning, but soft blue skies suggest warm temps later today.

4 a.m. seems a good time to slide out from beneath the sheets, turn off the fan that keeps mossies at bay during the night in this land without window or door screens, and head for the kitchen and the jug to boil water for my first cuppa of the day.

Angst swirled round my office yesterday afternoon - something to do with a dearth of responsibilities. Time to start the next short story.

And so with spring sprunging full of colour - Poinsianna trees in full flower, hibiscus orangeing up the lawns, rosemary in bloom, frangipanni glowing with fragrance on the front veranda - I guess I can manage one more day in paradise.
