... and through the final taper

Last week had treatments on Monday morning and Friday afternoon. Amy and I drove out Santa Monica Blvd. and down the California Incline to PCH. We had lunch at Gladstones and continued through Malibu to the Gordons' beach house on the Silver Strand in Oxnard, where we spent the rest of our 25th anniversary week.

Corin, Katie, and Garrett came out Wednesday for the anniversary itself and stayed overnight. Wild game of Triominos, in which I was thoroughly trounced. I redeemed myself by dominating the Texas Hold'em.

Corin and Katie both made original art projects for anniversary gifts. Definitely mutants! I can't draw a straight line with a T-square.

Read Alex Bledsoe's The Sword-Edged Blonde at the beach and started Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle. PPZ and Anonymous Rex are on hold while I read Vonnegut.

Did a phone interview from the beach with a writer from the LA Times. Big article on depression due in this Sunday's paper. Dr. Cook thought that I would be able to articulate my experiences with depression.

Lunch with Jim on Tuesday went well. Hoping to return to work in the next week or so.

Final taper session today, #35. Week-long booster series are possible in the event of a relapse. Good to know.

Corin and I went to (500) Days of Summer this evening. Good movie, albeit somewhat sad watching someone's life swirl into oblivion. Nice to see him rally and have another shot at happiness.
