more of the same

Today I gardened with P again. I dug up privets, and we pulled some weeds. When I got tired, I just sat and talked with P while she continued to work. Two mosquitoes bit me on my chin this time. A long time ago, Erik told me not to listen to Casimir Polaski Day because […]

retreat report

The retreat yesterday was both exhausting and inspiring. I just don’t have the stamina to sit through such a long program, even with the music as a break. My brain is full after an hour. Still, I’m glad I went, and it’s interesting to remember. Going on a trip is bonding, and I feel closer […]

Today I went to an orientation at my mental health place. I feel much more oriented. I’m glad I worked up the courage to go.

the talk on tourism in Goa, India

Last night we went to a talk at the Marxist school, and it wasn’t any good. The speaker was reading from a paper most of the time, some high school kids behind us were whispering most of the time, and it was difficult to follow the ideas. So I left early for the car. Erik […]

problem solved

All by itself, as it were. (Boy, I hate when people say “as it were.”)
