Got to talk with my mom on the phone last night (Dad was out at the bowling alley with the good ol' boys, in classic blue-collar Midwest fashion). I think she still worries about me being single, but I don't.

I could go on and on; it's a hard thing to pin down.

Have to work some today, which sucks. I'd really like to stay in the cave for another day, or even a few more days. I'll probably try to just get it over with right away.

Read a bit more in The Problem of Pain this morning. I do want to experience the joy of being finished with it, and of starting a new book. My attention span has been nuked by television and the internet.

The Cascades are beautiful this morning.
