By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

I have 4 more quarters left of school after this quarter. Then I can start studying for my PE, which I'll take the following Sept/Oct because I will have 4 years of experience under a PE once July rolls in. Spokane is a good city, but I'm not in love with it. It's cheap to live here and I've got a great job, so I can't complain. It's an amazing place to work....too bad it's not in Miami/SoCal. Haha!!! If only Connecticut was close to Washington....State that is. That would make things easier, and I could see Alex a whole lot more!!!!!! This will be an interesting next few years....
