The Rain and the Lack of Posts

According to local news, it's been raining for 44 days. It's raining right now, as a matter of fact.

Not hard, but still raining.

I am sitting outside as the cat wanders around the balcony. We let her wander each night, which fits with her cat hunting schedule. The only thing she hunts up here are plants, and dogs walking below.

The rain, in addition to closing the Trail, the lakes, the Pool, has brought to Austin the scourge of mosquitos, which will drive me back inside shortly.

I have been writing here, but not posting.

How interesting is it to read "heard the new version of x" "loved it" ad infinitum? For about seven weeks, all I have listened to is the new album as it's been recorded, assembled, mixed, etc. I love the new album, of course. It's better than I expected. It's so good that when I heard the first song for the first time, I actually laughed, applauded, and cried. At least I had the good sense to be embarrassed.

So, that's what I've been doing. Focusing on my business, and building, building, building.

The summer has been flying by. I spent this afternoon in a meeting at our favorite spot, where I will most likely find myself again tomorrow for lunch, and possibly again on Sunday for cocktails. Hard to believe we have less than two months left to get a whole lot done.

No wonder I am working all weekend.
