I think I'll do the WIP meme, I have four

These are part of a universe of my own making, not QAF, not Lambliff. There are 5 so far, one is done but not posted.
First: My music surrounds me, separates me, lives only in me and is, in just this moment, my most trusted and constant companion, that and the book I’m reading.

Second: I don’t know which surprises me more, that she actually is somewhere in this huge downtown mall or that she apparently is allowing me to come to her because, rather annoyingly, I normally only feel her leaving me.

Since it’s Thursday night and the bar isn’t too crowded, we’re able to find a secluded corner, furnished comfortably with plump sofas and oversized chairs, away from the main seating area that, at least for the next couple of hours, we can call our own.

How much longer can you stay there all hunched into yourself? It’s freezing out, but still you sit, ass on the cold stone steps that lead up to your pied-a-terre, knees hugged tight to your body, your head down like trying to protect yourself from the wet winter wind, while I sit safe and warm in Kelly’s Diner just across the street.

365 Photography Project_Take 2_Sixteenth Post

Sunday January 22, 2012_Getting the car in the garage, which may not seem like a big enough deal for an actual photograph, but while it may not be new, it's new to us and cleaning up the garage enough to fit it in was major.

Tuesday January 24, 2012_David, you can just see him, and I went to In-N-Out for burgers :)))

Saturday January 28, 2012_My January books_normally I wait to the very last day but, realizing that I use DVDs and especially books to keep me from doing what I know I should, I'm limiting myself to a certain number each month. When those are done, I am done and have to work on 'other' things like writing and drawing. What we have here is the book 'The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat', a series of essays about strange neurological problems, a PBS DVD series 'Why Quilts Matter' on the history of quilts, a Great Courses DVD series 'Philisphy: A Guide to Living' and the final Harry Potter book.
