it seems appropriate on ‘fall back’ day, when we ‘set back’ time (grumble cuss..), to comment on setbacks, of which there have been so many since the last time i mentioned them, that it almost seems like the normal way of things. some folks wake up to an alarm, or coffee; we awake to ‘what calamity will befall us today?’ the theory that there’s a limit to how many catastrophic events can befall one in a short time period has long ago fallen by the wayside. we’re almost getting philosophical about it. but not quite. i won’t even go into the latest set of setbacks. i don’t want to lose the readership of the 1.2 people i may still retain. so, i’ll just say, we still have a roof (for now) and hiking is still free. which we shall now go do, on this perfect fall day, with that farcical ‘extra hour’ to do it in. woohoo. wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey!
