Overdue update. We're back together, and I think stronger this time. Being apart just didn't make sense. It wasn't worth the grief. We're both happy.

Work is keeping busy. I recently picked up a pretty cool new freelance gig, designing a lighting system for a juggling and aerial company that's converting an old car garage into a home space for...

Well. The lady and I are taking a break, and it feels like getting back together would be an uphill battle. I think we're in agreement that it's necessary but it still hurts.

My blues are tied to a shortage of sleep resulting from too much thinking work. I hate thinking. It's overrated. In my next life I'm going to get a job as a lawn ornament.

You're lady is in a show? As in stage or screen or radio? That sounds cool, except for the not seeing ech other part.

I'm beginning to see a pattern.

April-May: Optimism.
Summer: Desire to do new things, intermittent frustration and depression at idleness.
Fall: Chugging along interspersed with anxiety.
December: The Pits.
January: Resolve to do better.
February-March: Overdrive, gritting teeth.

See y'all after the New Year.

The pits? Oh no! See you in '11, Squinty.
