winding down...or winding up?
I'm so relaxed I can barely blog.
The past six weeks have been a bit of a blur. I've flagged much of the United States (DC, Florida, Colorado, California, Illinois, Wisconsin, New York...), experienced vast shifts in climate (it was -30 in Milwaukee last week with the wind chill and in the 80s in LA's heat wave), and reveled in the joys of travel - train, planes, automobile, snowshoe.
Milwaukee was a surprising shot of culture (ie. the Calatrava-designed Milwaukee Art Museum) and a non-surprising shot of frigidity (the freezing freezing temps that would prevent me from ever living in the Great Lakes again).
I'm now residing in Beacon, NY, an adorable outpost on the Hudson River - a 1.5 hour train ride north of Manhattan. The spare bedroom at Venessa's place gets the majority of the heat in the house, and her house is so damn cozy that it's near impossible to leave...
Yep, that's all I'm going to write.
