In Germany safe and sound. Time with [livejournal.com profile] feorran is great. I still can't get over how wonderful the landscape is here, and it's wildlife. The city wildlife is interesting, too. I even saw a brown rat chilling up close on someone's front walkway. Very neat.

Spending lots of time reading, relaxing, and engaging in philosophical, social and political commentary with [livejournal.com profile] feorran. He also introduced me to this goofy anime cartoon called Hetalia. Heh, normally anime really isn't my thing, but given that it employs political and historical contexts in a sort of slapstic environment...and the fact that I actually have free time on my hands, I figured why not. Needless to say I would like the hours of my life back I spent watching that goofy damn thing. Also, gradually, learning my German. Being immersed in the language really helps, but there are times where I still feel pretty stupid. Hah. I'm sure that'll pass with practice, though.

Oh yes--I will not be getting to my emails or messages for another few weeks. Sorry guys. I know some people have written, but I just have no time right now, this is a rare moment I'm updating and I'm not sure when I'll be online again. Same with cell phone calls and messages. People have left me messages--mostly work-type folk, even after I told them I wouldn't be responding until I get home, unless its an emergency. I've even received art commission requests from people I've notified of my absence, and who are urgently awaiting a response from me apparently. I am a bit annoyed with people's inability to respect my personal space, but oh well. At least people like my art-crap enough to pester me about it!

Tango is doing well. He still has four more treatments to go. My father has reported a pickup in his appetite and activity levels. This is a very good sign.

Anyway, hope everyone is doing well.
