Spectacular light show in the sky last night - the livid yellowish clouds over the South Side looked like a pulsating plasma ball with all the cloud-to-cloud lightning. Simply mesmerizing, and it brought another gift: 70F temperatures today, whoo-hoo!

Tomorrow my mom leaves for three weeks in Brazil. She's going to an international dance conference at Iguacu Falls and then up to her hometown to visit relatives for two weeks. I worry when she travels (as she does when I do) and I suppose I also feel awful that I couldn't afford to go with her like she wanted. But I am VERY much looking forward to her usual multi-media travelogue when she returns. Interestingly, due to a change in Brazil's citizenship laws creating a strange sort of grandfather-clause phenomenon, when applying for her visa, she found out that even though she became a US citizen in 1992, she is still also a Brazilian! (Which is great news - as much travelling in the Middle East as she does for her career and research, I feel much better about her carrying a Brazilian passport than a US one. She still has a strong accent too.)

Oh well. At least I am enjoying the fuck out of Paradise Lost. Though I gather I am supposed to feel bad for Adam and Eve, and I just can't.
