Tired post-move but very very happy. The City of a Houston has already hung and lit big Christmas ornaments outside my door. I kinda like them. Even my 200-mile commute didn’t bring me down. My students, for the first time in many election years, didn’t act bored when I told them it was essential for young people to vote. They seemed enthusiastic. I guess I will be ending my teaching career on a high note. Good kids! Perhaps there’s hope for us all.
Back in a Houston, I returned to chaos. Paintings and art supplies everywhere. It made me happy to realize that moving my art studio was more complicated than moving my apartment. I decided my resolution is to have more art stuff than personal effects. I shared that with John, who said it was a good resolution. Also, I drew a buffalo. I don’t know why, except I kinda like them.
