That’s the song that’s currently playing on our stereo system. Ryan bought the new Over the Rhine CD.
We’re packing for a long-awaited trip… we’re visiting Newfoundland!! I have so many family members that Ryan hasn’t met. And he’s never seen my home. He loves Europe, history and context, so I think he’s really going to enjoy St. John’s! I’m also looking forward to introducing him to all my family and the gaggle of friends I have left in Newfoundland (most of them have moved away).
So we’re packing, then we’re on a red-eye to TO, and then a morning flight to St. John’s, NL. It’s a good 10 hours of flying, not including airport time. Diagonally across the continent… I’m a long way from home.
Off we go!
