I mean destroyed wave after wave of course, the Rhine has entirely swept away the old town, drawbridge, which is a shame because the city made considerable strides towards its completion in recent years. Also missing a number of cars.

prosody, has put many night, though residents who initially complained about hosting the shipwreck, survivors to shame, You are, so do we there's a lot? those who should be ashamed of themselves posted at the newly The open, pancake house Times. I get really tired of negative reporting as the most men into voice in local current events. I feel like what I say and how I say it does make a difference in framing the attitudes of the people who listen, that that's a big responsibility, so I've been thing it's important to focus on the positive things too. I'm going to try to do that more starting now, I said before was an exaggeration old town isn't completely destroyed? Oh yes, it's on. Habitable and some people who live there are now non living But there's a lot of beauty left there to anyone
look out over old town from the roof of the earth's science is building and appreciate the miles of prestige, shining water, why are we desert dwellers never get to see. All of that, majesty and destruction is almost totally invisible beneath the waves, so it's actually pretty easy to ignore, oh and one architectural Limburg does remain. Controversial, new traffic round about glowing with blue light, can be seen. Trust below the water line and will be ready to use again to see king of the roof of the Earth Sciences building. I should tell you guys what happened with Carlos the other night. It would really. Well mostly I mean he was very open about The fact that he's been hiding something from me, but he said it wasn't. Big deal- and he doesn't want to talk about it-
I know I said all I wanted was for him to admit something was bothering him and that pretending. Nothing was wrong, was really what was driving me crazy, but it turns out that true, now, I'm being driven crazy by not knowing what it is. I mean what, if it's about me, even if it's not about me direct the fact that he doesn't feel comfortable telling me he has to be a problem with us. Doesn't it we're it was to share everything with each other. Aren't we I couldn't let it go so I finally asked him to see a couples counselor with me, the We told one who, until ass we could been staying with my sister and her husband got hurt. Counselling licence last week, so we're going to see her get a discount centuries become so close to my knees. Janis we have our first phone session together, scheduled for later today, I'm really hoping we can get to the bottom of this. So I can stop obsessing. I mean
and also so careless can let go of whatever is distracting him so much, and then we can both get back to distracting each other. The emotional complexities of sharing a life with another are all that's on my mind. Also the sudden ocean which destroyed old, ope breaking it is on that all members of the Marine Biology Association have been reported. Missing Randy, Lance girl, scouts, splinter, affection leader reports that the GPS tracking devices she secretly adhered to. The biologists shoe heels, have stopped transmitted, and no one has seen any of the biologists in over twenty four hours.

That's good news we found them out in the scrub links that music we were only able to find partially eaten pieces of that with the leaders. Of the Marine Biologist Association vacated brandy, its declared herself and her girl scout splinter faction. As these cities, foremost experts in marine biology, lead
surmises there is an aquatic creature of large tooth size and insatiable hunger living in this new ocean. Lance speck, later, the biologists were engaged in a heroic attempt to study the marine biology abruptly available to them when events took a tragic turn. The biologists loved ones clarified that the biologists were. Actually. Town under the cover of night and in the worst possible intersection of time and space dying in agonized and terror filled death in the exact manner that comprise their worst collective nightmare. I'd doing what he loved a spouse of one of the deceased, said running away from his problems oh, oh, look at the time Carlos and the really told one calling for our first cancelling session who pro

the paste, because I was hungry, cried and ran out of the world. My dad they love me. We know now that all the other cancer pass all big inside of my own began Jean Marie Le Pen's hassle languages, pointless people to learn. Everything happens right on time by Canada, defiantly so much more reliably. Mile of term is now seven years we have never had the Roman by big break. Fares, destroy pass out other, so varied enough, be faction killer faction, shiny bags were anything happens, carried out so much while there is every corner chairs, and so they are. Everything is out of order. While there is peace out away the soft rush, the machine wildly gliding, never quite colliding only fraction of a second check. It happens right on whether that can count in the fire so much by well. That's why
an interesting first counselling session, a car apologise for being so quiet recently, and I said it was Ok. I was just worry. About him and the really tall one said we both sounded like we loved each other a lot, and I said well, yes, but that's not the point right now. The point is, I want to know all of Carlos is secrets and, Carlo said. So if it really means that much to you I'll tell you, the truth is This isn't my first faint emotion before I ever came to no avail. There was an incident, it happened, years ago. It was a different situation, but similar enough that I got preoccupied thinking about it. These last few weeks and simple I just need a little space to press, things on my own first, it doesn't mean I'm hiding anything from you. I mean I can't I am, but if it were- truly serious or was directly about us. I would talk with you about it,
this is just a scientific and catastrophic phenomenon, not something to do with us that he's verbatim Lacrymose said I wrote down every exact word like an expert. Rinsed journalist carefully investigating a huge story, and then I said yes, ok, fine, but what happened? What incident and he said he still Didn'T- really want to talk about it, and I asked the really tall one: aren't there some sort of therapy exercises we could do to encourage Carlos to reveal every detail of his past to us immediately and she said no- and I said maybe hypnosis or telecom me sis, I mean she's new, to the counselling profession and maybe isn't the where of all the tools available to her. Yet she said we have to accept that Carlos doesn't want to talk about it right now and maybe doesn't want to talk about it ever
She said a person secrets are their own to keep or disclose, and it isn't necessarily an indication. Of the degree of intimacy and relationship, and I said really tell that to my eighth grade self image. Feel embarrassed. I double down, it said I played truth or dare, and revealed to my friends that I'm afraid of mirrors and that I have a crush on one in the room, its cue, Carlos said who was there, and I said I can't tell you and then I said I can't remember. Actually I don't even remember what Here I was in the eighth grade, let alone how old I am, or even what I look like because of hold mirror thing, but I didn't want it Carlos all that he was too painful and complicated and not important and the really tall one who could I'm sure here. All of my thoughts smiled over the phone, which I thought smug. I'm still not sure how I feel about any of this
I have a lot more to say here, but there has been some breaking news updates piling up on my desk. Let's go her.
