go with the flow



Transitions are tough. It seems like Block Islanders are always packing or unpacking; always with the luggage and boxes by the door. We don't move far, but you can't help trying to make your baggage a little lighter every time.
  Today is a big transition, the Transit of Venus across the face of the sun. "From the Eastern U.S., Contact I should occur around 6:03 p.m. EDT," according to some website or other.  "Contact I will occur between the 11:30 and 12 o'clock position. Venus will then progress along a track that will run diagonally from the upper left to the lower right." Or check out this site. (For a totally nonscientific take on the Transit of Venus, check out the horoscope link on the right.)
   Jeez, now is when I should be on the West Side. On the other hand, it's blowing like stink (as they say in Hawaii) and totally cloudy, so probably won't be able to see it from anywhere.  They call it off season for a reason!

I think maybe you need a boat. To live on when your houses are rented.

Like a nice houseboat.

You could tie up in the Hog Pen, or maybe Paynes.

But actually, knowing you, you'll probably rent the boat, too.

Sigh.

I am going to your house on Thursday. Will try to get your phone working.
