Baby Colt feeling better. Friends who tell me what I need to hear. Cheerful things: Froggie, pumpkins, pumpkin bread (my favorite food!), falling leaves & crisp, fall mornings. A weekend in Austin for ACL. A week in Hawaii with great friends. Long runs on cloudy days. Tuesday nights with great girls. Opportunities at work. Inside jokes/memories with Katherine. A free country where we choose our government.
