Sorry it’s been so long.   The iMac’s keyboard got an unexpected dousing during Sunday’s surprise blow.   All’s well that 86 dollars and FedEx cures.     Actually, could Apple design a more beautiful keyboard?  I think not.

So, the last week or so has been super, super busy.  But, in the best possible way:

*  My folks departed 10 days ago, on a Tuesday morning.   It was bittrersweet as we had such a nice, connected visit.  It was not without its arguments (we ARE  Browns, afterall), but I truly loved seeing them.  We ate well, went on a full-breeching-tail-slapping-everyone’s-doing-it-31-whale watching tour, watched an amazing sunset or two, drank a little too much and generally enjoyed exploring my new town.

*  EriK was here for two full weeks.   And I gotta tell ya, there’s never been an easier guest.  I barely knew he was here….:-)  I cried harder when he said farewell.

* And then this week…..began with with amazing, head-clearing, self-affirming sex.   Melded into furious, insecure cooking and wedding arranging.  Then finished with a JohnBrown prepared meal for 10 of the most lovely, geniune and pleasant people I’ve ever had the priviledge of serving.   I cried today when I was paid.   A signal event, for sure.

* And then tonight…..extremely casual….tea dance with Joel….a Gift of a sunset….unexpected friends on a harborside bar….an amazing bbq sandwich from the The Red Shack….and red wine.

* Life is good.   The unexplored and unexpected is certain worth more than the “uns.”  Go for it y’all.   It’s amazing what one can learn.
