For today's post, I'd intended to ascend the south face of Annapurna,
then show a picture of the vista from atop the mountain.
And if you believe that, then I have a little mountain range in Nepal
I'd like to sell you. Cheap.
Instead, I braved a rain storm to go swimming Thursday evening.
The irony of that was not lost on me: I cleaned up
to go outside into the rain, arrived at the Natatorium where
I spent over an hour swimming lengths.
I then left the pool to shower, change clothes and
return to the rain, where wind gusts were whipping the
trees into a frenzy and where broken and dying
umbrellas had been thrown into the nearest trash can.
A massacre, a veritable slaughter of stripped nylon
and metal ribs, torn apart by the wind.
So, I have pictures of the Chase Tower in the rain,
patterns of subtly colored fluorescent lights
illuminating its windows.

There will be contributions from all over the world,
most of them more interesting than the Chase Tower,
and maybe even one from Nepal.
