We like to feel superior to the people who lived centuries ago, what with their shitty mud huts and curing colds by drilling a hole in their skulls. B...

Boy what a week.
I know I keep writing this, but it's true!
November's languid, humid days and sandy beaches have vanished for good from the rearview mirror.
Boundaries are on my mind--my own have been stretched to what I keep expecting to be the snapping point, the outer edge of pliability, and yet they continue to stretch and flow and extend and yet I continue to continue.
So that's a thing.
Other boundaries have been intermediately and judicially re-set, and I know I'm being oblique so please trust that I must be and trust that the re-set is a good and necessary thing.
Tomorrow: love for my mom and my fam and my man, funny how these are all 3-letter words and funny how they are all different kinds of love, no less strong for being different, all complicated and such a nourishment.
Today: chill on your mind's beach with Sammy Bananas:

A bit of justice was served today, about 260 days after the fact.
The fact I don't want to go into here, other than to say that in the not too distant past, a pathetic and cowardly person did awful things to some young people I know and care about.
So big ups tonite to my sister and her husband and my other sister and her family and the rest of the fam and friends who have sent good thoughts and prayers and scoured the internets and sat up late and got up early and wished for justice/revenge/karma to hit hard and without mercy, like a runaway train.
There's a pretty amazing kiddo in the mix who is young still and needs protection, who will never know how much this has cost, but she doesn't need to know, she just needs to grow up with hugs and love and security.
C'est tout on a cold and rainy night in Seattle.
