Traveling about and lost my password somewhere over the last 500 miles, hence the delay in postings, approvals, etc.
Many exciting things going on.
Have you ever walked across Manhattan the long way? I have now. I bet it’s a lot more fun with the right shoes.
Our home girl Kacey Camp is appearing on Conan O’Brien in a new skit tonight (October 12), so my peepers will be glued to the TV at 11:30 PM.
The last couple of weeks have been whirlwinds of meetings, flights, deadlines, talks with extremely nifty people, and Starbucks Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte. The depths of my shallow truth are revealed thus: the thing I miss most about city life is Starbucks.
The adventuring is all good in every way except for the minor car accident. My fault. I knew I was too tired to drive, but I really knew I was too tired to drive when I rolled over (the rock, not the car) and got stuck on that big rock, my front wheel drive spinning helplessly. No damage done, not even to my wallet, since AAA is all paid up. The tow truck was timely and lifted me off my perch, but boy, was I embarrassed.
Did get a chance to see the Tolkien papers up close at Fordham University. Very revealing look into the master’s process. The most extraordinary, delicate, perfect handwriting, careful construction of timeline, obsessive attention to detail. A real treat to see.
I can’t wait to blog about many exciting and wonderful things. I can’t blog about some other exciting and wonderful things, but life is just about perfect right now, except for the state of my tootsies after the trek across Manhattan. Which is a pretty cool thing to do on a Sunday afternoon, even if it did make my feet hurt fierce.
New York is a wonderful place and is full of magnificent people.
That is all.
