What is and what will never be...but mostly what is

This fall feels different from a lot of others Autumns. It feels like a light has been turned on and now everything is illuminated. Just what has changed...well, a lot, but it might be easier to make note of the things that will change...

Fall isn't just about football Saturdays anymore, although they have been in large part for most of 14 years now. I'll find other things to sink money into and watch this Rodriguez regime from my couch with a lake view...

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra will see our faces much more frequently I think...

We will be jumping in the car and invading your space every chance we get, or at least we'll try to suffocate you all as properly as possible...

There will be exercise and good, natural food to follow it...

There will be a plan, or at least the continuing development of a plan...

There will be writing...lots more writing...

There will be new traditions forged and old ones discarded...

We will finally find that little town on the Niagara escarpment that we discovered eight years ago and have never found since...

We will drink wine with friends, in funny places...

There will be artwork and photographs and a mish mash of visual inspiration and distraction...yes, a mish mash...

I will no longer be a Michigan season basketball ticket holder...

Japanese will be studied in this house...by everyone...

Grandmothers will travel to places they didn't expect to be traveling to...

Brian will invest his money, not just save it...

There will be an awesome auction...and it will be, well, awesome...

Dumb stuff will be sold on ebay until all that dumb stuff pays for a really intelligent holiday...

Brian will ride a roller coaster...

We will do something new and fun every month...something unexpected and unfamiliar...like, well I dunno, but it'll be cool...

Brian will build something, because he can damnit...now stop laughing...

Christmas shopping will be over early and the gifts we give will be the best ever...

We will all get dressed up for Halloween...

We will see Dustin and Kelly more...because we want to...

There will be random road trips to random places with random accomplices alongside...

Brian will learn to cook something, anything, good.

We're paying someone else to rake leaves this year...and while they do it, we're doing something fun!

We'll be back in California before 2010


There...how's that?

Pretty great. Especially since I am pretty sure to be involved with some of them.
