Poison Ivy

I got my first case of poison ivy ever the other day.  It’s been quite interesting; it’s all over my leg, due to my not realizing that there was a bit of P.I. leaf stuck in my pants leg for a lot of the day.  It’s a very mild reaction, just small and rash-like, and …

Counterbalance

I am going far in the other direction, into activity almost more than thought.  It’s refreshing to be back east, to be home, to see familiar locations with new eyes.  I’ve been making progress on my primary project (grad school applications), and my quaternary project (figuring out what to do with all my stuff, particularly …
