Other than that, we've been treading water to stay afloat. Work is nuts and it's hard to get up in the morning. I alternate between acceptance and depression about current conditions. I think, in reflection, that I am really homesick most of the time. Homesick for the Twin Cities, and homesick for North Carolina. Homesick for friends. Not as bad as when listening to a single Death Cab song sent me into floods of tears, but a bit of glumness about New England life. Which is really not fair to this beautiful, strange, and gay-marriage friendly area of the country. I mean, the cheese! The maple leaves! Hell, the maple syrup. Good stuff. We have friends coming into town this weekend and next, and Rhinebeck is coming up soon. Woolly sheep are beautiful.
It's all good. It's October in Connecticut and the cats are fat. Harvest time, yo!
