What I did today

After spending many, many days slaving over the novella non-stop, I took today off. I did a bit of cleaning, but mostly I sat in my wee office and stared out the window, listening to the rain pouring down in buckets. It's truly not possible for me to articulate what it means to me to be able to listen to rain, and to hear nothing else: no radios, no tv's, no people screaming and shouting, no pounding of feet against the ceiling, no traffic, nothing at all. There was just me, the wind and the rain, and the creaking of the building. It was pure fucking bliss. And then after the rain died down, I took a long shower, popped Season Five of "24" into the TV, poured a big glass of pinot noir, and spent a couple of hours in the kitchen cooking up a storm. I made enchiladas, corn bread with jalapenos and cheese, and rice with black beans. More bliss followed.

Serious, this rickety eensy isolated apartment is the best fucking thing to happen to me since moving to the East Coast.

And now there's a massive wind storm whipping it up outside.
