The last of NYC (as if...) [Oct. 15th, 2009|08:27 am]
[Current Mood |awake]

Tuesday: Natural History Museum and dinner with a friend at Keen's, up in the room with clay pipes displayed on the ceiling.    The Museum was everything and more that I'd heard/read about it.  Dinosaurs and elephants, o my.  Poison frogs and loud frogs and flying frogs and nearly-invisible frogs.  The spider-silk fabric, the dioramas, the artifacts from so many different cultures...(how a horn spoon is made...did you know?  I didn't, but I do now.)   I could spend a month, two, six just in there.   Keen's was Meat and the best mushrooms I've had anywhere. 

Wednesday was business: going in with my editor, meeting people in production, art, marketing, publicity, making a short video, making plans for the future.  Then farther down Manhattan to have lunch with a former editor.  Then off to a shopping center to get a new laptop stand because the fan in mine died, and a warmer jacket than I'd brought with me. 

Last night I packed some stuff in a box for shipping off this morning, and then packed almost everything else...finished that this morning except for the backpack, which I won't finish until I turn off this machine for the duration (that is, until I get aboard the train, where I will have power but not internet.)   This afternoon the train bears me away westward, and I get to Chicago in the morning, when I plan to board another local train for Barrington to visit friends overnight.  And Saturday, on to Texas.   Where, rumor has it, it's quit raining on our place for a bit and I might not get off the train into a downpour.

I'll be very, very glad to get home!  The trip has been wonderful in many ways, but home is home is home.

East, west, home's best.

Safe, and fun, travels. Austin is so green that you may not recognize it when you get here.

You left just in time. The weather has taken a turn for the vile. I hope Texas is balmy and green.

Re: home

And I miss you and Tucker. And Steve. And the Rice Creek Field Station woods.

Maples on the lower Hudson were glorious even in the rain, glowing across the dimpled, lead-gray waters yesterday. With some bald eagles in flight, too.

I'm in Barrington, IL at the moment, heading home tomorrow on the Texas Eagle.
