A mourning dove sat mournfully atop another huge tree.
I passed a cottonwood tree, its fallen seed pods, tufted like cotton, giving its surroundings the look of dandelions gone wild. I passed a neighbor mulching his lawn, and tried feebly to make conversation about mulch and begonias. A huge great blue heron flew over the houses just as I neared home. My wife and I looked through my new cacti and succulents book, and she pronounced the living rock (lithops) her favorite. I got confirmation from my buyer in Hawaii that he paid for priority shipping of his box of 8 track tapes. I set out a suit for tomorrow's court appearance. I typed my LiveJournal entry, while the open financial magazine features an ad for "Accuquote", in which a pictured toddler asks "Daddy, what happens when people die?". I pause and ponder, for a moment, and then wonder to myself if one's insurance portfolio flashes before one's eyes.
