A pretty cool month, all together. Though mostly eaten up with work and all the things that had to get done to get a release out the door, it was also highlighted with my birthday, a visit from Cera, and actually getting completely through the process with a product that was nice and solid when it got out the door.

Bad things included my bridge breaking off yet again, dealing with the consequences of likely having to change dentists, and the need to be watchful about my health, my habits, and how I take care of myself in the midst of release madness. I get closer to crispy critterness than I like.

Saviours included NorthWest spectacular scenery and weather and the flame colors of Fall. Also the kids that John coaches were a real uplift of the spirit. Reminds me of what it is like to be young. We also took the time to play hookie when it was all done and the brake was quite the relief.

A new obsession for the month includes sourdough cultures and what can be done with them, and learning at a gut level just how easy it is to make the daily bread. Also learning the wonder of growing things and figuring out how to keep something alive and growing and happy with regular feedings.
