i'm back, take two
So the apocalypse brushed by the DC area, leaving trees down and roads closed and tempers flaring. after the 2 hour drive home last night (need I mention that I live 13.2 miles from my job? at least for the next few weeks...after that I'll be a measly 2.5 miles away.), i took the pup for a walk.
amazing birdsong. thunder. conversation. helicopters.
no air conditioning noise. no automobile noise.
we strolled up the road, and stared at the huge trees that had fallen into the road.
it was a little taste of "roughing it" without the rigor...reading and playing piano by candlelight, talking to neighbors rather than closing windows and doors, and being distracted by tv and computers.
quiet, quiet, quiet.
