"I had a very pleasant journey, thank you sincerely/ For giving me my madness back, or nearly."
It seems that I've accidentally made a tradition of reading Irish poetry on Saint Patrick's Day. This year: Kavanagh.

Scenes from the farm. Mom says grandpa was a Chevy man but that he had a rusty truck sitting in this same spot.

This weekend I stayed on the farm where my mom grew up, in the house my grandparents built. It was sold before I was born, so for me, this was a place that until now had existed mostly in the province of story.

I've been making some new friends. (Their affections are easily bought with carrots, so we're already thick as thieves even though it's only been twenty four hours.)

Scenes from Saturday.

I got to see my brilliant, funny, friend Jess do standup comedy last night, and (as will come as no surprise to anyone who knows her) she killed it. 🔥

John Williams is brilliant, and hearing his music played live was a real delight.

Gettin' older, stayin' silly. 🎂🥂🔫

The kind of book that'll make you fight heavy eyelids on a long, late-night flight because you want to know what happens next. Also the kind of book that will have you so completely absorbed that you jump halfway out of your seat when the passenger next to you sneezes. (Or it will if you're me, anyways.) As for what it's like: I told someone today that it's kind of like if the TV show Once Upon a Time was written by Neil Gaiman.

There's an art installation in the lobby of the New York Times Building made up of screens showing different lines pulled from NYT articles. As I walked through, one said, "You can freak out later at night when you're alone," which turned out to be pretty good advice.

I have a lot of good feelings about this city and this view.

The Laika exhibit at the Portland Art Museum is incredible and absolutely worth seeing. It's amazing how much skill and imagination go into even the smallest details of their work. (The Boxtrolls is my favorite, but if you haven't seen any of Laika's movies, you can start anywhere; they're all great.)
