September 15, 2013
Halfway through the month, this is the first SAN I've written since I was fired from the job that dominated my life for the last 3.3 years. Everything from here on is a new path. I kind of like it.
I've been trying to find a lead in to returning to my beloved SAN, but nothing came out right. Meanwhile war with Syria loomed in the nation, Ariel Castro committed suicide, the New Delhi rape-murderers were sentenced to death. So many things happened over the summer. I went camping for the first time, got a new backpack and a new bike (which had been an unexpected gift). Korra returned this weekend, SPX, Mayweather v. Canelo, the Iphone 5. The summer of 2013 was a tumultuous one. In Russia members of the LGBT community were assaulted by religious zealots, Pope Francis seemingly preached sermons in contradiction to the Catholic Church, Obama & Putin made uneasy concessions to one another. I read Mark Waid's Daredevil, Gail Simone's Wonder Woman, Berserk, Gunnerkrigg Court. I finally saw Pacific Rim, took myself to The World's End & backtracked to Hot Fuzz.
