-August- Quiet

I feel as if somehow, somewhere, we're letting somebody down.

November's been a quiet month for us, it seems. I'd say no news is good news but to be honest, it feels strange. Not having posted makes me feels... disconnect? Almost... distant? Anyways, it's not really time for musing.

Doc and I left Hope the other day. Seeing everybody again was... probably the greatest thing to have happened to me in a while. I loved every moment I spent there, even if cooking for everybody was a hundred times harder than I thought it'd be and I didn't spend nearly as much time with everybody as I would have liked to. I almost feel like I missed out on something - so I guess that means I'll just have to go back again sometime.

Elaine, thank you for taking care of us . Konaa, Lis, Tia, Michael, Shaun, Lucas, Richard, Elliott... christ, I can't even begin to name everybody I visited. Some people I've never met before. Some old friends. Some new ones too, by the looks of it.

Lis gave me a wonderful scarf and I have to admit, I haven't taken it off since she handed it to me on the first day we arrived. It's gold and handmade and so, so soft.

We're still probably a day or so from home. I'm just throwing this post up now to say that we're safe, we're on our way back and yes, there's still life on this blog.

Not that we haven't gone for longer stretches without activity - if not ourselves, other Stalked. I kind of wonder sometimes if people worry as much about us as I do when I go without hearing from somebody for more than a week, and then I remember that that's just how things are in our business.

Be safe, everybody. More details to come, if necessary.


  1. Lis, thank you for the scarf. How you figured out that dark green is my favorite color without asking, I'll never know.

    Elliott, Richard, and Alex, I wish you three the best. You deserve nothing less after all that you've been through.

    As for me, I had a very restful time at Hope. Had a lot of work to do, but things were actually relatively peaceful there.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed your time at Hope. It was really good to see you both.
    Thank you so much for everything.

  3. Oh good! The house is way too quiet without you.

    (Also the food sucks.)
