Was good to visit with my Aunt Beth, Uncle Zia, and Cousins Nasima and Jamal while in chicago--ish; as well as Duncan, Linnaeus, Simba and Sirius; and Roho and Genet.
Especially cousin Nasima, who's got her Pharmaceuticals PHD, her condo in Evanston, and her act together. We ate at Uber Burger, I helped her haul up a couch and dresser neighbors were getting rid of, and we went to a free jazz quartet concert just about on the beach. It was, as she put it, 'Living the good life'. She really is. There's mild envy there, but mostly appreciation.. little cousin has her act *together*.
right now I've got my intermission together. We'll see if I get my act II taken care of.
