September 1. That means I am no longer 56. And that summer is about done. Which is kind of a good thing, because it was a tricky summer. Alex is settled in Amsterdam, and all is going quite well. She has a sweet photo blog, Let’s be Adventurers, so take a look and imagine what it would be like to spend your junior year abroad in a room on a canal. We’re thrilled for her, and happy to have weekly Skype sessions, occasional texts and photos.
Birthday 57 was all kinds of wonderful, though closer to home. Steve and I made a return trip to Point Reyes, this time for an all day kayak trip. Our original plan to kayak on Sunday was windblown (literally), so we wandered over to Bolinas for the day, and kayaked on Monday. In between all that we had wine and coffee and cheese and chocolate and hours upon hours of hangout time. I even thought of a new idea, which made me super happy. I am not entirely sure how it will play out, but I just bought the URL, Thisisplanbe.com.
So let’s go. It’s gonna be a fine year.
