I went outside yesterday afternoon and finally experienced the hot, bright intensity of summer. Here in New York we've had a very damp, cool season so far -- but that ended yesterday, when we finally broke 90 degrees in Central Park. I'd forgotten what it's like to be outside under that white, relentless sun. I was glad to get inside again!
I had to go out for a doctor's appointment -- I'm seeing a gastroenterologist partly because of my recurrent gastritis. We're going to do a few tests over the coming month to make sure nothing is seriously amiss. My nightmare is that he's going to ask me to give up coffee or alcohol -- or both!
