not much to say... again
life has changed again since i last posted. after a week and a half working with the kids (with whom i had a lot of fun) i could feel myself getting sick. without health insurance that's a very serious issue, so when the offer for a full-time position came in at goodwill industries of hawaii i had to take the job. i've been there for about a week and a half, and i'm still trying to learn everybody's name. it's a great group of people to work with, and the office ambience is warm and upbeat. in the afternoons when i get home, i spend my time watching the big screen (see the picture here) where the geckos hang out. at night i make sure to turn on the light in the carport so they have a good supply of insects to hunt. it's so much fun to watch them scurry about snatching flying bugs out of the air! there are several types of geckos here, but these house geckos are the most common. the other night i counted at least seven of them hanging out around the light in the carport, and one time i saw a gecko try to catch a moth that was bigger than him! they're amusing to say the least, and it makes me happy to watch lizards. since the people came to wash off the roof and the sides of the house, i've not seen any anoles, but i'm sure they're around still. i'll just have to sit outside one of these days when it's not raining and wait for them to come bob their heads at me.
quote of the moment:
If you find yourself alone riding through green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled for you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!
