October is easily the grandest month as far as Midwest and (Mountain West) weather is concerned. We’re well into the semester, and I’m well into this new (chapter? section? vignette? moment?) in Red’s Barbershop. It’s been (amusing? sad? hopeful? enlightening?) to look back at all of these geographies I inhabited, and it’s exciting to see some of the animation come together. I also took a stab at an illustration for an article in the LCCC newspaper (Wingspan) concerning an annual literary event (Literary Connection). I attended New Belgium Brewery's always perfectly weird Tour de Fat and even made a trip to the magical town of Telluride with my special lady friend. I’m hoping for magic all around this fall.
