Like my brownhouse:
   nightmare is ending
Thursday, November 6 2008

setting: rural Hurley Township, Ulster County, New York

I took advantage of the glorious additional burst of Indian summer to continue my concrete block laying, installing 14 during the course of today. As I did so, I listened to the radio and reveled in the ongoing bounty of good political news. It's a refreshing contrast with the situation I recall from four years ago, when the news about Bush's reelection was so depressing that all I could listen to was music and old episodes of This American Life. I remember the depressing thought that I'd be forty years old before this nightmare would end. Here I am, forty years old, and the nightmare is ending!
