Tonight, I'm lingering at work due to a major monthly project that needs my attention. I'm taking a break, listening to "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman. This song has long been one of my favorites. Just the idea of jumping into a car and getting away from it all, that promise of a fresh start, is an appealing daydream.
I heard that it actually warmed up today from the arctic temperatures that we've been recently suffering. You know, back above freezing. Unfortunately I didn't get away from my desk today to experience it. I made it into work just as the sun was rising and I look out a nearby window now to see that it is pitch black once again. There are just certain days where I don't get to see much of the sun.
Another unfortunate development is that I'm going to getting home so late that I won't have time to do any writing tonight. My one goal is to actually catch up on the email that I have been neglecting recently. Speaking of which, I've been told that I'm hard to get a hold of. So, if you've got any questions for me, but don't want to leave them on the blog, I can be reached at:

Have a good, productive and/or relaxing night.
