On a clear day, I can see Mount Baker from my little capitalist atelier in the back room of my house. Not today though. Wind and 50mm of rain predicted for Vancouver, so I am sure we'll get pretty much the same. As I find the US news to be nauseating, the CBC is quite refreshing and much more comprehensive than even NPR. And it's entertaining too. I find myself listening to the radio many mornings in my procrastinating efforts to rise from slumber.

But now I need to suit up in my rain gear and brave the weather. Do the afternoon errands out about the town. At least it's quite warm here and will remain so for the next few days. Usually it's a joy to be out in this weather, even though it looks quite foreboding from the warmth and dryness of the inside.

But whenever I return home, I always am so thankful that I have a dry place to hang my hat. Being homeless in this town would suck. Back to work on a stormy Monday's noon.

instead you are laying in bed listening to the radio?
You will never become a capitalist that way~
