i am on the Amtrak 11.

so S and i met way back in July and got to know each other a little while playing The Real Game of Life one night. i had a lot of fun and enjoyed the chance to ask real questions of her related to the game.

we saw the movie Over the Hedge toghter and that was fun.

we have traveled to Arcata where i met her sister and her dad. we have seen a couple of movies together (An Inconvenient Truth and more recently Peaceful Warrior).

some of the other things she seems to like are: yoga, chocolate, AmeriCorps, the biking in the Dark Angel series, and I ♥ Huckabees. that as well as the other stuff listed like bikes, bike touring, sustainably living, gardening, growing food.

we were in a work party that helped erect some fencing at Mt. Zion Dairy Goats Farm. goats are fun. we (as a community) are planning on getting a trial run of goats at Lost Valley.

S and i had a really nice camping trip at Fall Creek in the Willamette National Forest. we have also visited Saturday Market in Eugene and Nanish Shontie where i had wanted to visit for the past year but had not gotten to yet.

these past months have been busy first aid wise as there have been lots of minor injuries and insect sting occurrences. i have been digging up yellowjacket hives at Lost Valley as there have been an occurrence of about a sting per day.

S and i went on a short bike ride to Lookout Point Lake. i had a lot of fun that day with the picnic aspect and i like being again more on a bike in general. i enjoyed the feel of the wind in my hair as we biked down Hwy 58.

i was surprised to find at Blue Mountain School, where K and M (formerly R) are starting school, that there were two Xboxs with Halo 2 as well as computers playing WarCraft III.

i am sad that poisonoak and for_the_fiya moved from Lost Valley.

this past weekend S and i went to Shabbat and Selchot Services at Temple Beth Israel. that was new and fun meeting a new (to me/us) community.

i am planning on building a living roof over the Shasta Loflyte trailer. the living roof will have compost, pumice, tree bark as the growing medium.

Miss you too, buddy. If you ever need a retreat from the slower paced world of the country, you can join me in the chaos of the city, 1648 Alder street.

Take Care.

Hey, I got your phone message. But last night I came down with something terrible. My throat is realy really swollen and I can't really talk. I was wondering if we could put of lunch til later in the week... maybe Friday? Then you could meet Robin, if you're up to it (you don't have to, but he's very sweet and I thought you'd like him. On the other hand sometimes it's good to have me all to yourself and that doesn't happen often.)

I'm looking forward to seeing you.

Well... I am azvailable, I just am not sure how I'll be feeling. I'm available tomorrow, but I can't really talk, so it seems odd to go to lunch.

OTOH, the food there is really mostly very good for me and maybe it owuld be just the thing I need. Let's say Wednesday at 11:30 or so? How would that be?

that would be great. 11:30a. what is OTOH ?
Sep. 19th, 2006 04:17 am (UTC)
on the other hand. it's just short hand. so... I'll be in therapy til 11 then I'll head over and meet you at Cafe Gratitude on Shattuck at 11:30. Yay!
