September always gets me thinking about change. It feels like there's always something new to examine. New school, new city, new home, new job, new relationship, new whatever. New life.

But this year, I'm staying put, right where I am. I guess thanks to a combination of happiness and luck.

So instead of looking forward as I am wont to do when the weather turns, I thought I'd do a little looking back instead.

So... do you live under the bridge or on top of it?

...all of us are done for.

You live in a beautiful world, yes you do, yes you do!

Neil, for someone in grad school, you're very unimaginative. Wait... no you're not. Sometimes, what we remember isn't a specific place. It's a feeling. That may or may not be called up by an image. Get it? :p

Vanessa - yes!
