My journal is named to commemorate my regular 'zine in the APA Mutations, which I ceased publishing in January 2005 with monthly issue 253.
As of 1 April 2020, I became a resident of Lawrence, Kansas. This was a major change, and I don't know what shape my life will be in once things stabilize—but given the economic and legislative trends in California, staying there just wasn't viable any longer. Now I just have to adapt to my new habitat.
As of 1 February 2021, we have the keys to a different apartment in Lawrence, which we will move into on 9 February. (The management at our first place was very slow to respond to problems. It's really too bad, because the apartment itself is attractive, has a good layout, and is well insulated.)
And as of 5 June 2021, we're quite satisfied with the new apartment. The rent is lower; the listed floor area is less, but the layout actually feels roomier; and the management is very responsive to questions and maintenance issues. We're feeling a lot happier than in the former apartment.
