literary species

Something needs to change.

I hate to say I am a little annoyed by the trip I just took, but I must (that's a neat rhetorical trick, isn't it?). Don't get me wrong--it was a fine experience and I am honored to be a part of it, and we did have a great Institute, but it fronted some niggling urge in me to make some big changes at work and/or perhaps at non-work.

I know that's not terribly specific, but I'm not really in a mood to tell people about my odd feelings of anger and frustration.

  1. Maybe you are experiencing growing pains.

    Charles and I were experiencing a very special "Blanco moment" this morning. There was a cool north wind coming in little puffs, it had just rained, in fact it was still dripping. There was a mist off in the distance and everything was extremely green. The dogs were all standing with us, experiencing it too. It brought about in me one of those feelings of yearning, kind of like a deep itch that needs to be scratched. I was trying to explain it to Charles. He was also trying to explain that this exact moment was like a dream come true for him.

    Anyway, those yearnings can be painful too.
