It was a pleasant one; the thing that has made it best for me, though, is probably the rain every evening, like right now, as it comes down outside, and I contemplate how much water, particularly moving water, is amazing.  (Who am I kidding?  Seeing friends and talking with random strangers was what made it best.)

I’ll be back east in less than a week, and that’s great.  I am also coming to some very clear ideas about what I want in life, and possibly how to achieve that.  Fortes fortuna adiuvat.
