a heavy bank of clouds obscures the sky today as if to prepare me for my aloneness. in a few hours my mom and dad will be taking off and back to their own lives, me back to mine. this trip has been fruitful and i hope to share many things i learned from it in the coming days, but right now i'm soaking up the last moments. the basic outline of the story goes: i love my parents because they are strong, good people. i can't stand them because they are so opinionated. we have alot of fun together because we share a sense of adventure. they drive me nuts because we have so much history of conflict. i want more time with them, but i also want a safe retreat of my own.
today i go back to work and i'm actually excited to see my coworkers. they really put on a show for my birthday and i love them for that. the place is probably a mess, i better get there early.
