“I believe the stars keep shining all throught the night.
I believe if we just keep trying it will be alright.
I believe that someday we’re gonna find our way.
And I believe in a beautiful day…
…But not for me…”
- I Believe by Chris Isaak

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve a bit under the weather lately. It started out as a cold and morphed into an ear infection. What I hated about being sick these last few days is that the weather has been mostly pretty nice. Temperatures in the mid-60s and bright sunny days. People were out and about in the sunshine, walking their dogs, playing frisbee, out for a jog, but not for me. I lay on my couch hacking and coughing away. The worst part is that I knew there were pictures out there to be taken and I wasn’t taking them.

I’m back at work again and the weather is cold, cloudy and wet again with the forecast calling for more of the same. Go figure.
