a secret order must have many secrets. look closer.
i began a entry for this diary months ago. i began with "ah, the dog days of summer..." well, now it's feeling more like autumn. the leaves are changing and there's a chill in the air. i'm taking the train to work more often these days. i still think it's funny whenever i hear the word 'ballroom'. i still write but not as much as i used to. i still like the old songs. the first frost made me sad... we lost our tomatoes. i like my office. i love my job. there are a lot of people i care for deeply i can see every day if i want. my routines are shifting. i'm more protective of my time. i've become something of a voracious reader and i enjoy being at home. i meant to mow the lawn this afternoon but watched 'curb your enthusiasm' with friends instead. i still like to know how you're doing. i hope you're well. el looks very pretty in her new glasses. i love her cheekbones. there really is not much more to say. we just took a carrot cake out of the oven and the house smells more like home.
