In 24 hours I set off for Rome and Florence. This anniversary trip and vacation couldn’t have come at a better time for the both of us. It also seems a bit surreal since the financial world around us is falling apart and we are playing the small roles of expatriate. At lease for two weeks. Maybe a trip to the left bank would be more in order.

Fall as finally arrived in full with the turning of October. I’m hoping the change in weather, and the change in attitudes will be good for work and everything else in general. I hope. It could be a long winter if not.
