I have been seeing the images of Pope Francis on the news and on facebook.  I have such mixed feeling about him.  I like his humbleness and kindness and yet the church's stance and his stance on women's issues and gay issues is still too painful.

I think I am getting used to the hot days.  I didn't complain when my living room was 90 degrees in the afternoon.  I realized it would cool down in the evening.

Not quite so many tourists this weekend now that labor day is over.  But still they were about in their clueless way of walking the streets, driving irraticlly and looking at their cell phones.

I am reading PURITY by Jonathan Franzen.  The book is from the library.  I accidently picked up the large print edition.  The wait for the regular print is too long so I am struggling with the large print.  It just doesn't feel right.

Still the weather is hot.  I want to apologize to all my relatives who live in hot climates.  I am sorry that I didn't appreciate what you have gone through.  Next time I will listen.

We had our neighborhood labor day party today just as the temperature was rising.  hotter and hotter.  We sat in the shade of the oak trees and talked.  Once a year we meet ant talk and then the rest of the year we are busy.

Another hot day.  Didn't do much.  I am reading the lastest Elena Ferrante's book about Naples. THE STORY OF THE LOST CHILD.  It is hot there also.
