Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2013 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Rain on the air conditioning unit.

The susurration of pills inside vials -- the few slow clicks of big gel capsules versus the quiet tumble of small solid tabs.

Birdsong, far away.

The laptop fan, and the rhythms of my fingers tapping at the keyboard.

My joints cracking as I roll my neck in a tight circle.

Inhaling, exhaling, then yawning as I turn to work.
