The Night I Painted the Sky (Jimmy Buffett)

Tonight I'll be going over to N's house - she lives a half-block from the Rec Center so we'll park in her driveway, walk down to the major boulevard, set up our chairs on the sidewalk and watch the "big deal" fireworks (zippity!).

POEM: Fireworks Accompanying Galaxy Collisions (Haiku) by Sue Barton

Jellyfish floating
Luminescent tentacles
Electrical sting

QUOTE: "The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!" " ~ Jack Kerouac
