so, how did i get from caregiving for my parents in NJ (the Vortex Of Evil, aka VOE) to medieval Ohio, you ask? long story.
short version: i did my time, five long years, having lost everything, with no end in sight, and no foreseeable future, and then this very strange thing happened. a totally unexpected Plan B materialized before me, and after lots of agonizing, self-examination, and negotiation, i took it. the end.
that’s the very short version, which leaves out all the psychodrama, so i’m going to leave you cliff-hanging in suspense until the next chapter, whenever i get up the energy to elaborate. but i said i would try to write something every day, so here’s your something.
meanwhile, here is a lovely fungus for you to enjoy while waiting.
