Unless you count the brief flashback in the Storm of Souls, this is the first time Jacob and Miranda have been seen together in the comic. After ten years, and considering the circumstances, I think it called for a hug. Even if Jacob isn't really much of a hugger.
It's an otherwise slow news day, and that's just the way I like to end most weeks. Despite being the narrator for a burlesque show this weekend, I'm looking forward to a relatively mellow end of the month. I'm also eager to welcome my favorite month of the year, October. Lots of nice things happened to me and my wife last October, and Halloween is our favorite holiday, so we're hoping to have an excellent (and spooky) month together.
And finally, I love our new neighborhood for many reasons, but the one that's been delighting me the most is the relatively low light pollution. This past month I've been treated to beautiful naked eye views of the night sky. The Big Dipper has been hovering over our backyard in the evenings, and as winter slowly approaches we're seeing Orion come into view over the roofs of our neighbors' houses. I've barely taken my telescope or binoculars out because I've been enjoying the full scope of the sky. It's been magnificent.
That's all from me for now.
Rock on, and have a nice weekend!
