Sitting at the kitchen table, watching Eric make a steak for our dinner. We always have a steak after weddings. Have I ever mentioned that? Lots of steaks eaten over the years. These photos are from the farm this past week. Our cover crop is coming on strong, and this may not seem like a big deal, but it feels like one of the largest accomplishments for us. Working on some dutch masters stuff lately for a project I got in the works. Wild roses all over upstate blooming. The wilder, the thornier. The hornier. Just kidding. Reading a lot about Voyager and the heliosphere lately. The edge of the solar system. The more I read about the cosmos the more I think about the nature of reality, and the more I realize that it must be a figment of my imagination. This is a freeing idea for me. I feel like I've been living out of my duffle bag. Heading to Seattle tomorrow. Some business, some pleasure. Is there any other way in Saipua land???

You are coming to my hometown. Do you need any random advice? Or do you know what you are doing?
Love your photos, love your writing.
