Humboldt County, California
February 4th, 2020

1998 / 2018
Oakland, California.
As Nightgaunt slowly expanded its
textile wings, it outgrew the confines
of both host and former habitat. 

Summer 2018
The Mrs, having recently graduated from
nursing school, accepted an offer from a
newly constructed community clinic
in need of Family Nurse Practitioners.

Fall 2018 / Winter 2019
The Move.
Strange, the relocation from Oakland to
Fortuna is a... blur. As fog dissipates,
it seems memory has faded along with.
Ramifications are felt to this day, however.
Physical therapy, stiff upper lip...
All will be right as rain in time.
Ends outweigh means.

The return to my beloved forests.
A peaceful house on a secluded hill, 
with a view of the quiet town below.
The Mrs may start her career proper.

I may refresh my 'career' to accommodate
and evolve in this new environment. 

2019 was an arduous year of surgical
experimentations for reconstruction.
Allowing the beast to reform organically
is producing exciting results.

 Upwards and onwards.

With kindest regards,
Adam Grimm
