Schools in, again.

The downside of perpetual education is the repeatition of that sentiment. It seems like each year the semester starts a bit harder, a bit more madness, a bit more severity. A dance that features the elbows up style of a mosh-pit to juxtapose the circuitous spaciousness given to fire poi at a massive.

And since that is my only complaint then I am a lucky man.

Before September arrived the world was awash in the the patter of rain from the late afternoon thunderstorms and the gloaming delight of long summer nights. In those moments before the fracas was re-engaged questions were raised as to what kind of foolhardiness this endeavor was built on and what kinds of fools were we to try for it.

The question still stands.

I'm still playing catch up with the things that fell by the way side this summer - including friends and family and duties and work ... I'm even catching up on making a list for those things that were here for a moment and gone before I could act on them. Which is a much longer list than I'd hoped.

Anyways around it - I got to two conferences this summer and did functionally well enough to make me feel like an actual scientist - GODDAMN! I also got to get back to see my folks and friends in Missoula, which was a very good treat indeed. I'd missed my friends Guy and Mike in my visit, which is why previous paragraph has something of a sad timbre.

A higher note was also struck - above and beyond all the rest. I got to have an adventerous tour through Glacier Park with Kate - which was a novelty for us both as, somehow, neither of us had managed to get to that corner of the world just yet.

There's other things too - I should write on the meditations of revisiting Seattle and pnodering the trajectory of one's life ... but those are words for other days - my time tonight is short because I'm due for a visitor soon. Look out there - to the highways .... she moves.

Thank you for pointing out how important sharing music is.

in the eyes of the amore."
