First, the apology: I'm sorry I didn't make this announcement sooner; I really should have!
Second, the announcement: There's this fellow, urbpan, who's posting 365 Urban Species in his lj this year. It's really, really great, and all of you who are interested in ecology, permaculture, and especially how nature and urban environments interact will probably enjoy it.
Siento sed de tu cuerpo y de tus manos Y de tu amor que he tomado a grandes tragos He agotado su existencia en mi presencia Y hoy lo reclamo con un llanto a tu nobleza Quiero amarte de los pies a la cabeza Y acariciar tu cuerpo fuerte y de batalla Hasta que mi piel se rompa en mil pedazos Y brote toda mi inocencia cual tierna lava Y mi sed no se calmará ni con besos Ni con sexo ni con nada. Quiero amor del más puro y más sencillo Solo amor, y que transpire Por cada poro que se abra.
I want to try using this recipe to roast a turkey. It's a little too summery, still, for turkey-roasting projects, but something tells me that when I get around to this, I'll want company. Plus, I'll need help eating it. Maybe in October.
I was just looking at my calendar and realized that it might useful for me to mention, just in case anyone wants to see me sometime before October, that I'm about to have a crazy few weeks:
Everything is basically normal through Labor Day, other than the fact that I'll be housesitting for friends in Inman Square, but the Thursday after Labor Day, I leave for ten days in Greece (Greece!!), getting home the 17th, just in time to go to Minneapolis for work on the 22nd, coming back either the 24th or flying from there to Colorado Springs (possibly by way of Ann Arbor) for another work thing on the 27th (though the CO Springs thing could turn out to be for Sept 1, instead, which would mean that things aren't normal up to Labor Day).
I'm really hoping the Colorado trip will be for the 27th rather than the 1st, as that lines up much better with my not-so-secret plans to visit various people around these trips.
At any rate, September basically doesn't exist for me, which is too bad, because it's a nice month. But I like October, too.
