Earth with Michael

i know i have to start with the seminar paper, or the biblio of an urban poverty article, or the readings on realist evaluation, or a re-reading of the mini chapters written since april. but i don't want to. instead, i chose a non-cerebral but monetarily rewarding task of googling names and addresses just to help me home on my seat, familiarize with the scenery and air of the centre, and acclimatize with the eerie silence of not having nicole around.  how i wish to see the Hubby coming down those steps to the arc once more, for us to walk the way home to windelya and just absorb the noise of passing cars drowning our talks together.  jane calls it, 'coming down to earth' because, indeed, in the past two weeks i have been in heaven and beyond. i caught a glimpse of a life with the Hubby, all absorbed in him and through him. and how i wish that life is really permanent. that outside of the arc and this phd, there is a real man i'm coming home to and with, every day, my true and real love by the name of Michael.
