This time last week, I was in La Quinta. Kinda missing that place, as I sit down to work on my dissertation for the better part of the day. 

"One day you’ll find yourself entering college. College is great, but don’t forget to eventually leave—higher education should prepare you for the world, not become it." 

I am trying to exit the program successfully. It's an uphill battle.

update: it's almost 4pm and time for a Los Altos cocktail 


Morning Zen interrupted. Subie’s check engine light came last night. 

Had a nice breakfast with the kids at Sunshine Cafe while we waited for Subie. It was right around the corner from the dealership and the weed district of Cathedral City. I've never seen such a high (see what I did there?) concentration of dispensaries and grow operations in one place.
