lions and tigers and bears oh my

What a bear of a day...rushing to get a brief done, hopping on the phone with urgency after urgency, capping off with a bit of pro bono work at a legal clinic, sorting through documents...
my moment of frustration at the corporate office store when

endless Buffy and Star Trek reruns and maybe I'll even figure out where Babylon 5 plays these days....

Massive storm tonight! So beautiful...deep purple ("Dweezil Zappa and his mother had the best place in town"), yellows (do I invoke Coldplay or Yello for this joke?) and pounding big drops of rain.....rain is my mantra, the only true meditation....grace liquefied.....
