Travel Updates...

I'm sitting in one of my favorite spots on the earth, the cheery kitchen of my brother and sis-in-law in the absolute middle of this great country. The kids are pounding up the stairs to grab costumes and are pounding down the stairs to the basement to engage in complex light sabre battles. My sis-in-law has treated me to her amazing German chocolate cake. I've been slurping on fabulous coffee.

I'm in one of my happy places.

But there are always things you learn when you travel to new locales, when you experience the local culture and the local flavors.

And I am learning something important in this cheery kitchen in this happy place.

And that is this.

It can actually be somewhat chilly in the middle of America in the middle of July.

As in, we could legitimately fire up the fireplace.

As in, the kids are wearing sweats under their costumes.

I clearly have been living the the lower south west regions of the U.S. for quite a while now.

Because this turn of climatolgical events is quite stunning to me.

I feel my personhood expanding already.

It's true.

Travel expeditions do make you grow.

If it stays this chilly, I may grow fur.

Don't try to visualize that...
