I am home! It's been one heck of a month of activity. A perfect month, really. And the last 2 weeks were an especial whirlwind. I spent 3 1/2 days in NYC, 2 days in Long Island, 2 days in the Catskills, 5 days in Maine, 1 day in Boston, and a few days simply travelling. I rode planes, trains, buses, cars and the infamous NY subway. I was bilked by costumed people in Times Square. I had the best and worst burgers of my life. I discovered buffalo wings (who knew?!). I lost a scarf and bought 3 more to replace it. I henna-ed my friend's bald head (her photos). And best of all, I spent much-needed quality time with my peeps. I also took over 3,000 photos (many of which you will see translated into paint, very soon!) - a few of which you will see below. I could go on and on.
