Leaves Turn Inside You

I knew it was coming; I was going to have to deal with it. The apartment was echoing more and more. Small things were growing sparse. Only a few big items remained, waiting for hands and a truck. I made the final pass for things that could go in boxes and it was on the topmost eastern shelf in the closet. There was no denying it's presence. I recalled the entire thread in my mind, unwound it like so many rolls of film. I grabbed a UCSD bike-to-work shirt that never fit right, an old license plate from a car I no longer have, and it. They all went in the trash bin. Later we came by, six hands and a truck, and moved the last big pieces. After everything was up in the new apartment, we opened a couple Full Suits, put on a Stan Getz record, and talked about trial enrollment, prospective stratification, the different styles of diplomatic fencing, conference abstracts, and genetic disorders.

...and life doesn't wait for anybody.

...you didn't by any chance come across the videos from our bike trip, did you? (...we'd lent them to you to show at our reception, but it didn't happen..)

we'd love to get them back, though! ♥

Unfortunately not; I'm sorry I don't have them for you. Thinking back, I am certain we've had this conversation before...

...i dont believe we have.

..gosh, really steve?... i'm pretty sure many of the tapes weren't labeled, maybe you just don't realize they're there.. you had about 5 of them...

we never even had the opportunity to view them, except for the snippets you showed us on your camera...

Que pasó, pasó... y que será, será!

I'm hoping you're digging the new place, Steve!

It is definitely home more so than my last apartment.
