The housing hunt might be drawing to a close, with a gorgeous Victorian in Hayward, sporting wood floors, original mouldings, and an old-fashioned W.C., edging out the dingy 60s-era boxes in Daly City and the charming but run-down 20s bungalows in San Bruno. Both Hayward and Daly City turn out to be about the same distance from Palo Alto. Hayward's downtown, just a few blocks from the rental, is surprisingly charming (full of bookstores, restaurants, and interesting architecture), and BART is less than a mile away, too. Let's hope the applications go through. Drifting is difficult.
I've been dancing again. My dance partner and his wife had their twins almost two months ago now, so his life is very full, but if he goes into work an hour early he can steal an hour in the afternoon to practice a few times a week. We may even compete a couple times this spring. Blues and Argentine Tango round out my current repertoire, and the occasional yoga class keeps me limber.
My piano is in storage, so I've snuck into the recital halls in the music building a few times to play. I'm looking forward to having access to my piano -- and my books! -- again, hopefully soon.
I've also witnessed some amazing sunsets in the last month. Here are two of them. Flickr has more pictures.
