Worked overnight last night, saw the sunrise from 25 feet (8 meters) in the air.
It was windy and about 38°F (3°C).
I was working with metal straps and cables without gloves.

Still, it was a lovely sunrise.

But now?
Totally unable to fall asleep.
It’s going to be a groggy day.

The Isle of Calliope

Ulysses sailed into that weird wind that circles winder-shins round the Isle. Whistling through the crags and spires, it sings like a playground pipe organ, announcing an arrival at Calliope’s.

“yo, leesa”
“Ulysses.”
“yeah man, you-a leesa, me tago”

Sigh.

“What do you want, Tago?”
“yo man, what’s wrong with those animals?”

On the shore, wild beasts of every nature gamboled around the castle, forming a zoological moat of fur and fangs.
