Shift of the Day #2221

Leave a place for as short a time as two months, and when you return the changes will astound you – at least a little. Bridges has had this slow accumulation of changes, from the restyled route labels to a new set of floodproof crash pads (still being installed – hence the array of plywood). Kotaro has even cut his hair; it took a few moments of mental reconfiguration to recognize him.

Life always has this slow procession of changes. You notice them more when you look away, like astonished rarely-seen relatives with their my-how-you’ve-growns.

Kotaro is leaving for far-off climbing adventures soon, so my climbing company will continue to flow onward. People come and go, but it is lovely while they’re here.
