I can’t even remember what I did the last couple days. I got to NY on the train and then raced from the New York Times to New Yorker, to Library Journal, Barnes and Noble, Book Forum. I don’t even remember all the meetings in two days and then a spectacular reading at Bryant Park.
I am glad to be coming home and this weekend is going to be busy. Thursday night we are going to the Bowl to hear Mozart, then Friday we are going to the Bowl to hear Beatles music and then Saturday we are seeing We will Rock You with Queen at the Ahmanson.
I am going to Pilates and running and generally getting on top of my game. Back to work/fun/reading/writing.
Next week we’re going camping in the Sequoias. I like the green thick forest with trees rushing together and the waterfall in the back ground. We always go in the water. I wonder how much will be flowing this year. The girls are bringing their dog who I think will love the woods. She’s been in San Francisco, she needs to smell the forest floor.
I need to smell my own bedroom. I hope I’m hitting the ground with energy at 110 %. A lot to get done this fall.
