Has it already been two weeks since I returned to Portland? I have not had a moment to notice. Between shipping Fall 2011, organizing the house, teaching my class at the community college, working two days at the Farmer's Market (to which I am rushing off in ten minutes), and seeing friends I have barely slept. Ok, not true, I have been going to bed at eleven and waking at 7. The days are dark and overcast. Bello seems sad. I am thinking of taking him to an animal physic.
