one of these things is relocation. it is clear that the jewish community in seattle is not what i was hoping it would be. had i known this before moving here it would have been straight over to los angeles, or maybe just figuring out how to stay where we were.
as it is it could be here for another year before being able to go down there. i am hoping that all will work out for the best.
meanwhile, i have a very blue vampire bear - he has hardly gotten any questions and so he can't answer them - no questions to answer right now. he wishes he could get some.
