going out to buy milk beneath the pleiades

There was not even enough milk for tea this evening, so I set out to get some, and looked up, and there in the sky were the pleiades (or, "was the pleiades"), my favorite constellation.

I love them (or it) so much...

Our household is shambolic, which is why there was no milk. I was announcing the shambolicism to all the neighborhood by complaining loudly about it from outside our house, pointed out wakanomori---but this does not matter, as our immediate neighbors have intuited the shambles already.

Amid the outdoor shambles, I discovered that I had forgotten to harvest carrots, and brought a bunch in--including this parent-child pair, little carrot twined tightly around big carrot. Second picture shows them separated.






amanen was playing me "Hallelujah," and reciting the lyrics, and I thought to myself, wow, those lyrics really sound like Leonard Cohen, and then it turns out that yes, indeed, he wrote it. Here is a YouTube video of him performing the song. Many people prefer different cover versions, and there turn out to be OVER 9,000 (sorry... sorry... influence of the forest creatures) of those, but I just love Leonard Cohen--almost as much as the pleiades.
