Every morning

The overpass

The swamp

A bagel and  The Economist

A cup of tea at home

The pen and paper or

The real work that I do

A call from Allison

A warm feeling of peace like

A cup of tea at home

Allison via instant message

A warm feeling of peace like

A cup of tea at home

A dream about some odd thing
