it seems there's been a kind of rejection by immigration
up north of my application -

we're looking into it - though i was told i was a 'shoe in'
but

after regailing all the potential causes to the lawyer -
it's now clear to wait 8 weeks - to see the notes
and hear what the next step is -

ugg -

- My friend wrote and email " I am really sorry to hear that "-



after about a half an hour of thinking how to deal with the day and my cough -

i wrote back -

----

yeah -

you know what though

i am kind of running out of steam with this whole process -

i am tired - i also have a cold/virus right now too -

but - at the risk of sounding flippant - but perhaps it's just
'maturity' - i am realizing - no matter where I go - there will be folks
I like - or don't like - touches - I appreciate in the city or culture - generally -
and individuals - who i find really worthwhile -
and those- I don't appreciate -

I think it has to do with values - and spirit -

engagement in life - and caring -

so - I am tired - and stuff - and loosing my patience -
with all this -

but - in the bigger picture - as I grow to be ok with myself -

ability to be alone - and get on in life - and also have really wonderful friendships -

I think - my acceptance of limits - and diversity and stuff -

like yesterday was dad's birthday - and frightened as I was
I called and told him jokes -
and we laughed - and it was nice -

and then I went on my way - to the symphony -
which was super! - (and I called and left a voicemail for michael tilson thomas (conductor) saying 'yay! great show!" \:\) )

so - all's good i suppose generaly - just impatient to get settled now -
get some work - and get rid of this cough!

generally i am happy independent of canada - or wherever I am

I think. \:\)


------

anyways ((((hugs)))

have a good day!! -

the Mission District - is an arty district -

kind of ghetto on the verge. ... of
gentrification -

- so lots of art theatres - homelessness -
and sketchy crime -

Here is a joke for you.

Satan vists the church
One bright, beautiful Sunday morning, everyone in tiny Jonestown wakes up early and goes to their local church. Before the service starts, the townspeople sit in their pews and talk about their lives and their families.

Suddenly, at the altar, Satan appears!! Everyone starts screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in their determined efforts to get away from Evil Incarnate. Soon, everyone is evacuated from the church except for one man, who sits calmly in his pew, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy is in his presence. This confuses Satan a bit. Satan walks up to the man and says, "Hey, don't you know who I am?" The man says, "Yep, sure do."

Satan says, "Well, aren't you afraid of me?" The man says, "Nope, sure ain't."

Satan, perturbed, says, "And why aren't you afraid of me?" The man says, "Well, I've been married to your sister for 25 years."

Mission District was named as such because of the Mission San Francisco founded in 1700? Many hispanics these days - originally Mexican, but now from all south of Texas to Patagonia.

Just another section of SF, e.g. Sunset, Haight-Ashbury, Marina, Potrero Hill, etc.
