Sorry. I've not much to say today. Been focused on the writing which has been going pretty great. I love it when the words come out with little effort and the whole thing seems to be fitting together just so. One of my favorite things, really... 1,000 words yesterday and 600 so far today. (I slept late.)
Yesterday, I spent time with old friends I hadn't seen in quite a while. It was really nice to do so. Had a great time sipping cider, philosophizing, and watching fireflies with my buddy, Sean. (It'd been far too long.) I got to ride to the store for party supplies in The Precious.™ (Troy's yellow corvette.) Overall, it was really wonderful to see everyone. I'm sad we missed the earlier part of the evening...but that's okay. I'm sloooowly recovering. (It's mostly my neck hurting, and the a...ceremonial forgetting to drink water due to having too much fun yesterday.)
Speaking of old friends...someone I haven't seen since '95 posted this photo on FB.
Holy crap, that was a long time ago. LOL. (Most certainly pre-Dane.) That's me on the far bottom right. My friends Troy (top left), Thad (fourth from the left, back row), Harry (fifth from the left, back row), Tony (standing behind me), Austin (kneeling next to me), and Heather Rose (in the white poet shirt.) And if I'm remembering right...the door behind us is the closet where Troy slept. LOL. (There were six of us staying in a room designed for two.) It was Convergence 1 in Chicago. It was 1995, and the first time goths from all over the world (or at least the US, Canada, and the UK) had gotten together. That was an amazing weekend. It was also pretty tense as I'd been kind of dumped by my boyfriend not long before. (Long story.) Anyway...It's so odd looking at that photo now. It was the first time I'd been to Chicago--or traveled anywhere other than Austin or San Antonio without my family.
