abstract butterfly

water, water everywhere

Fans rotate everywhere. Our upstairs bath developed the tiniest problem with the smallest coil of freshwater heading into the least-used commode fixture. We had a silent movie moment of flowing water and shovel-work in search of the buried shut-off valve.

Now the fans run all over the house, as we fight back the dreaded mold which in north Texas can follow neglect of such situations. We caught it all immediately. It's not really a very big deal, although any such home expense is an unwelcome one. Yet there's something very sci fi about all these fans, whirring, three sisters, slicing the air, destiny.
