I wrote the above several hours ago, when the weather, which had been suffering from a severe personality disorder most of the day, decided to turn thunderous. Stormy weather effects me in strange ways, and warm stormy weather always makes me want to caper about out of doors, which I am fully aware is not the wisest course of action when the storm is breaking over your head. It also brings odd looks from the neighbors. On this occasion, however, though I restrained the urge for an outdoor caper, the storm did a splendid job of restoring my post-work wilted lettuce person to something more closely resembling a crisp new leaf. That and a visit from my Portland-based sister combined to make the latter part of the day quite splendid.
The album release is set for this coming Saturday at 7pm, as part of an all-day block party. Looking forward to it. I've been asked to bring some of my clothes to show as well.
