Back from visiting Andy. Aurora, Nick and I came back along hwy 5, then took 41 all the way in and had a bit of fun. I think I scared Aurora pretty good, but ... 'twas a fun drive, and well worth it.

This was also Rainfurrest weekend, and part of me definitely wished I could be there, with Rob, Q, and Sean. But I also very much wanted to see Andy and Sacramento. I think, overall, Sacramento was the best choice. The conversation Andy and I had Friday night made the whole trip worth it.

I think the most important part of this weekend, though, was what happened in my head. New seeds have been planted... more things to consider. Talking with Andy about our respective lives, and the lives of our friends, helped to put a few things in perspective.

He reminded me, once again, that the only way to live is to remain engaged with the people and the world around you.

There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret, or life is yours to miss
No other road, no other way
No day but today

I'm not sure I'm coherent enough at almost 1 AM on a Sunday to discuss this. But there are plenty of open, valid options available for me career-wise moving forward. I can only assume the social situation will take care of itself (really, what else can I do?).

On a somewhat-related topic, my brain is still a tangled mess when it comes to relationships -- was thinking a lot about Sean at Rainfurrest this weekend. Don't really have the words to unravel that particular ball of yarn at the moment -- and even if I did, it's probably not particularly relevant anyway, other than to note that it's there.

Also, Rent has been added to my to-buy list. Glad I finally got a chance to see it.

    So I'm thinking of moving away from LJ. Every time I glance at my ad blocker, there are an uncomfortably-large number of advertising and tracking…

    It’s that time of the year again -- another year has passed, and as usual, I don’t finish reflecting on it until the first 3 months of the following…
