Downright Dreary

(I actually wrote the following yesterday, but then today—sun!)
This little mushroom is now sitting in a spot previously occupied by a similar one which recently got broken (but is being glued). This newer one is my favorite anyway; I love the crackled top and ruffled edge. It has been wet and gray for days and days, not too unlike this day almost a year ago, but without the spring greenery that brightened up the landscape then. At that time I talked about plans to eventually move back to Oregon. Well guess what? I don't think that's going to happen anymore (sorry Oregon peeps : ( ). As cool of a city as Portland is, I just don't want to commit myself (and a little girl) to that many cloudy days. But that doesn't mean we're staying here in Austin, either. We'd still really like to move, but probably won't know where for sure until we're closer to actually making it happen. But topping the list right now is Sebastopol, California (shhh, don't tell! I want it all to myself!), which is a small town about 50 miles north of San Francisco and 15 miles from the coast and, per Wikipedia, is "known for its liberal politics and small-town charm." Sounds good to me! (Just for the record, I don't necessarily take the liberal stance on every issue across the board, but regardless I know that these types are kind of my kinfolk.)

  1. I hear Houston is not a bad place. And for liberals, we have a lesbian mayor!
