Austin is amazing, even if I realize a huge part of that is subjective. Lately, even through some of the hardest days of my adult life, the world seems (mostly) full of interesting people trying to be good to each other. There are so many distinctive, comfortable places in this city to have a drink, eat dinner or just to sit around and make each other laugh…it’s really kind of amazing. Parties, games, gatherings, and packs of highly social people on every corner. Sad to think of the wars, famine, genocide and shit going on elsewhere. But the the sun is out here in our city and today seems like a great omen.
