the exodus has picked up steam and is moving forward way too fast for
many of us.. While part of me is ready to go, most of me is not. I've

ARRRGGGHHH!! reality.. we're just not gonna go there for now..
The Jazz Pharoahs on at threadgill, to a smaller crowd than what i've
As i make another trip to storage about 4:30, the line of cars proceeding
slowly, sadly down the long, dusty parking lot towards south gate is not
a warm, pretty sight..

this one has been different, moreso than the "expected differences"..
I'd welcome any thoughts on this subject from those of you who have already
It's 6:44, the fish fry with still on the hill has started, and the tent
and camphome has been packed.. The bags of dirt we used to fill are open
again with no tent covering them..
Coho and Singkerrnicity are both gone.. most other camps are in partial
Sadness is the order of my day..
