No one is here at 0200 EST ... what's wrong with you guys on Pacific Standard Time? It's only 2300 ...

Doesn't matter. I'm used to seeing the night out.

The tires may just have bad valve stems.

The photography industry is effectively dead. No one is willing to pay for content, even in cities like NYC. Besides, all my gear is large format film gear, the digital camera that I would borrow from time to time from my friend is now about ten years out of date.

It's not a career choice nor a career any longer.

I think what I need to do is be willing to just let go of my house, hunker down at the safe house, concentrate on going to school for science, and put all my reserves into my kids for the next few years. With luck, I'll be in a better fiscal place in five years and can rebuild then.

I think it's just a matter of really looking at what's most important to me, then planing from there while being willing to make huge sacrifices since I clearly can't eat my cake and continue to have it, uneaten, on my plate.

It's not always as bad as I write it.
At least not after a few hours sleep. The Cellar only gives you local timeframes, so Sometimes I'm awake from 03.45 and therefore posts at 20.30 are after a day that feels long and weary.

I do have real problems.
Many of them would be solved by huge injections of cash, it's true.
The others I carry in my head and would pursue me anywhere I went.
Irregardless (ha).

No amount of kind words on a screen can mend me.
But they are balm and sincerely appreciated. Thank you.

Shit, it seems like you guys have terrible luck when it comes to not-your-fault auto accidents. Here's hoping his insurance company has deep pockets.

That sucks. So many bad drivers out there. It's disheartening.

The snow might've had nothing to do with it.

I've had the misfortune to drive/ride through Georgia a few times, and through Atlanta twice.

I've traveled (literally) all over most of this country (30+ states), and, beyond doubt, the most aggressive, least considerate, non-driving, bastards in this country are from in and around Atlanta, GA.

I have relatives there. They are some of the finest people you could know, but they cannot drive for shit.

That thing where two of you get home after the gym'n'swim thing both feeling a little dozy and one crashes out on the sofa and falls asleep and the other puts the groceries away, folds some washing so that they can hang the wet towels up to dry, feeds the cats, empties the cat litter x2, sits down gets up to let a cat out, sits down gets up to answer the phone, then gets to sit down. Finally.
That.

There was no snow on the road. But there was plenty on the hood that had most likely just did down from his windshield.... But mostly he told me his car couldn't drive on snow when I suggested he pull into the abandoned gas station we were right next to. Now I know the car can go on snow....

Apparently the police report says he has no insurance.
