Hotel Paintings

I’m at the point where every town we pass, I think “I could live there.”

I’m at the point where every hotel painting I see, I think “That could be a good job for me, painting pictures of garden gates and checkered tablecloths.”

I’m at the point where I want to do just about anything but sit in the car, or repack dirty clothes into my suitcase, or try to make my hair look decent. Scratch that one – I gave up on grooming a few cities back.

My daughter’s roommate Libby said, “You two look amazing.”

I think she means we look frightening.

I just smiled at a little girl in Starbucks, and she hid behind her mother’s leg.

    anonymous, if only you knew! He is a dear cousin/friend of mine, with a penchant for writing dramatic messages…he'd told me months before that he would be there – it is so impossible to do personal calls & invitations on tour, and some people never figure this out. But he is family, after all – so he forgives me and I forgive him for his complaints.Roy and Michelle, we'll be back soon! Kim and Rosie, thanks for offers of solace/grooming implements. It's our last night in America – I'm too inebriated to write an actual post. I can't wait to get home!
