the sky that wasn't

since opting for sobriety 32 years ago my life has fallen into patterns. unless there is reason I tend to go to bed by 9:30 & rise at 5ish.

last nite Nature's p.r. team was promising an explosive sky. so I stayed up late to observe the meteor shower. by 12:30 I'd seen but one shooting star.  so my exhaustd body hit the sheets. I did wake at 3 to go outside again.  this time I saw nothing extraordinary.

I have seen this display before & was hoping for the best. as often happens when these events get hyped this was a disappointment.
