2001 is now the second-best year of my life, after an incredible run by 2002.  Things are on the up-&-up.  This time I was still far from home at the beginning & end, opening in Ontario & closing in Arizona.  In between, I became engaged to Emily Garin, graduated from college, moved to Berkeley, & got a job.  It was almost unendingly fresh doses of real life & the feeling that (finally!) my life extends beyond what I can do for a teacher.  At this point, I'm almost an optimist.
