map quest

I relocated to the other coast last week. My brother and I drove across the country, my car stuffed with stuff. That’s one heck of a drive. I thought I would document it but after 10hrs a day of staring at open highway, my mind was as flat as western Kansas.

I moved out here for various reasons – help my Dad, try something new (again), transform my identity (hopeless idea) – but it’s all a big mystery.

    Hey Joanne ! Congrats on successful trip – I thought of you when tornadoes were in the Kansas area. Glad you missed those.

      Missed them by a week – whew! I didn’t need anymore drama than the drive itself.

    Holy smokes…moved again. You are an adventuress! Glad you made it safely. Give your Dad a Kansas style “Howdy!” for me. I still think about walking and talking with him. You are very lucky to have him.
    Love the direction your work is taking. Your language is so distinctive! When you get your card line up and going, you should try marketing them at Hobbs, The Raven, The Dusty Bookshelf and Signs of Life, maybe even the Etc Shop. It would be a nice market to test in. (and then I could buy some!)
    Nancy, smiling at you!

      Thanks for the good wishes, Nancy. I am starting work now on getting those cards out there.

    I love that you qualified the flatness by saying, “flat as WESTERN Kansas”. You are a truly knowledgeble ex-New Yorker!
