One thing I used to like doing back in England was to be in a toasty warm room, drinking something nice, looking out the window at the freezing cold world outside. Not much opportunity to do that in the Californian Central Valley, but today it was possible. It got down to 19f here last night, and although I know it is colder elsewhere, I did feel justified in sipping by mocha latte and gazing through the window. Here is some music that I felt fitted the mood.

And then all this rem action has resulted in me waking up, but I am groggy, still close to a dream state. Floyd's psychedelic ramblings suit my unfocused mood as I slowly realzse that the heat I feel is due to my air conditioning, and not to any manic dancing.
