F 1 D 0 - 2002 11 20 at 0100 Thought I was seeing things. So, there I was, looking into the sky. It looked wrong to me from the start. It was around midnight, and the sky was a dark blue, not a black, not anything else. Stars abounded. The moon was full. Everything was bright. Too bright, actually. There was glare from the lights on the street, including our very own motion sensing driveway light. But you look out to the sky anyway, or at least I did. I saw stars. Then I saw something. It couldn't have been anything, really, as it was gone before I could make a sound. A white streak almost connecting a pair of stars. Ah, it happened again, and again. And again. Tonight is Meteor Shower night. Some kind of event, as there are shards of ice coming in off of a comet, and as they crash into our little planet, we see streaks. I'm lucky. I'm in Ontario's north, and this was supposed to be clearly visible in the San Diego area. A far cry from where I live. I am getting better at fiddle and guitar. Still not good at it, but I can follow a few chords now, and can take a turn when we follow the aural traditional of melodies. A leader teaches a song, we each take a turn to attempt to play it. It feels like an oral tradition, where we pass stories from one generation to the next by sitting, listening, and trying to retell the stories ourselves. I used to attend a storytelling weekly session when I was in Toronto. It wasn't my favourite thing, as notes were verbotten. I brought notes, as my story was long. Sigh. I'm supposed to memorize it and do my best without help. Oh well, so much for oral traditions. I only went now and then because of such experiences. They meet at St George the Martyr church every friday night, all year long. Also on fridays are the song circles. I'm more likely to attend that, even though I hardly attended those either. In fact, I went out of my way to learn a new song, and chorded it, and got the words all right. Then left it on top of the piano in someone's home. I don't know their name, and they don't know how to contact me. Lost and gone forever. I'm going to keep this short. I want to see some more meteor shower before I go to bed tonight. That's all I know.
