i'm away

I want to go home. I want to go for a ride. I want to sleep in my own bed with my spouse.

Luckily I am doing what I love. Detail. Niggling, fine, fiddly cartographic detail. Thousands of elements on tens of layers, all woven into thematic meaning. A power pole at every change of direction of the line. Symbols precisely placed. Annotation sitting free of encumbrance from lines. Tiny stuff that matters if you want perfect, and perfect is the only option. I finish the day with my eyeballs scratchy from concentration. That groove between my eyebrows is now a furrow. I love my work.

2 days til home, I want to go for a ride. *sigh*
