2004 broke the streak for best-years-of-life that had been set in the 3
previous ones. That makes it sound like a bad year, which it wasn't. Beginning at one home in Berkeley &
ending at another in Albuquerque, 2004 got the job done without standing out in any real way. I worked for Seneca all
year, which was rewarding but still took incredible patience, energy, & often strife. My first full year of
marriage was great, but a bit soured by Emily's summer of endless work. We moved in with Fish in March, which was
great, but he hated his job so much that happiness seemed a little delayed. Remember 2004 as a get-me-over curve-ball.
Though that just reminds me that the Mariners lost 99 games in 2004. At least Ichiro got that record!
