haruspex: babylon (lady of babylon)

Woke up from a slow, pleasant dream to a heavy summer rain. Despite the fact that my entire body aches in odd places (despite the lack of the guerilla shrining project. wtf, body?), I'm in a wonderful mood this morning. I've found two or three more places that I'd like to move into, obtained newer and better bedclothes (in the festive color of my tribe, no less), and I've got a new collection of Rumi's poetry. On mornings like this, it feels like the entire world's been washed clean and restored to balance.

Hit Best Buy, tried to flag down one of the guys in the computer parts section. Was told "Five minutes." Waited ten minutes. Snarled. Left.

Headed over to the Box Shop on Lyndale. Grabbed a new memory stick, and a cheap flatscreen while I was there, since it's about damn time I got rid of the immense HP monitor that I've had for the last six years. Icarus is running much quicker now, and the monitor is lovely. And now I'm off to go swimming.

As seen in a dream. Or somewhere. Can't quite get the image out of my head.

A short, slender woman seated on a stone bench that has curved arms like this. Her hair is loose and unkempt; several clay bottles are clustered around her bare feet. One of them has been tipped over onto its side, spilling the wine. She is dressed in a ripped and torn flounced skirt in this style. Her face resembles the sylph in this painting, but the eyes and nose are concealed by a veil. Her hands are folded her lap, almost covering a wickedly curved knife - she wears a small, almost contemptuous smile.
