Rain fell much of the night and morning. A stomach bug and general malaise collided with my work day, and much time was spent keeping warm. At the cusp between sunset and nightfall I needed outside air.

So Cleo and I explored a few unfamiliar cul de sacs in the complex, she ever patient. We avoided the muddy fields, and most of the puddles, some of the cold.

Then then ankle got sore, and I wondered how I'd play soccer if walking hurt so much now.

the leash chain tightens
clouds hang over the trailers
