a year-end party

Toronto, 2017.11.30

Cycle Toronto's staff and board had our Christmas/holidays/etc party tonight, out in the west end. With my abiding lack of personality and wit, I don't get invited to much (at least not twice), so it was fun to get out for once. I'd volunteered to bring snacks, so I went to a grocery store and got one of everything from the snack tray things they carry. The big hits: chocolate-covered almonds and gummy bears. The misses: pine nuts, corn nuts, and the figs (though they were 30% gone). I took the unpopular ones home with me at the end of the night.

It was also the first night since I started the green-light study about migraine treatment that I've missed my nightly time with those lights. I suppose I'm doing well, though I haven't noticed any lasting change, yet.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

In the wake of 9/11, we [in America] have made the decision as a society that we can never again create something in which we can take pride, for fear that someone will destroy it. Moreover, we must suppress any trace of individualism, lest someone have the desire to rise above the bland sameness that protects us. I have, alas, no idea how to recapture our courage.
