Wow. 6-4 6-4 6-7 6-7 9-7! Talk about epic matches. All the rain delays diluted the drama a little (or added to the drama, depending on your perspective). I am so glad Raffa won. This was one for the ages. (Now, perhaps, he can ditch the capris?)
In other news: my friend Susan gave me this lovely cutting from her "Rex begonia." I just love the colors of these leaves. Hopefully I can get it to root (it is just sitting in a glass of water right now) and to pot soon.
Worked a long time today mapping out a crown of sonnets. I am not much into form at all, so these are not going to be typical sonnets, in any way, but I love the idea. The 15th sonnet will take a line from each of the 14 (but it may not be the first line) and will be a kind of chorus of sorts. Who knows if I have a snowball's chance in hell completing this. At least for now, I am really intrigued to try.
