Seriously, this visage is haunting. It is the first time I noticed it, too, maybe because the leaves are beginning to fall, so now it is not so hidden. Considering the fight over the San Francisco Peaks and the tradition of bigotry against the indigenous people of this region—and that tradition is going strong—haunting is appropriate.
Been working on a profile about my partner for work (NAU is featuring him because he is an amazing artist, he graduated with honors, and his life story is fascinating—whew—talk about a quintessentially American life). It’s not easy – I can only use about 700 words!
So my work has been on my mind today – and of course – the Democratic National Convention. Took a break and listened to Bill’s speech today – and man – the 90s were so good for me. So I listened to the DNC on my way home, and watched President Obama tonight.
Handsome, brilliant, eloquent. I want to see what can happen in the next four years.
And the beautiful and determined Gabby Giffords. Oh!
Open the floodgates – the kids are back.
Flagstaff went from a quiet slow moving town to a giant traffic jam in one day.
NAU has officially begun classes. The wind picked up and it was a little chilly, too. Autumn is coming.
Everyone is busy, busy, busy.
The sign seems out of place – all bright and flashing on a faded, dusty side street – but I honestly wouldn’t have known that a restaurant was even there had I not been there once.
On my way to my place in Phoenix tonight.
First dinner (at home – wait, it’s not home, but it’s home), then, the road.
