Well, we are back in the Bay and brushing some of the road dust off. Our Easter trip to visit Texas was great: not only did we get to spend important time with family, but enjoyed the time we spent on the highways and byways. Many beautiful wildflowers, funny hotels, odd experiences and encounters.
I think of the roadtrip as a quintessentially American experience what with the vast expanses of open land, the car culture and, up until now, the cheap gas. At $5 a gallon, it is not quite the budget vacation option anymore. I’m glad to have embarked on many mad-cap trips in my twenties, as sitting that long in one position is not quite as easy as it once was either!
Now we are back home, back on a healthy diet, and surveying the road ahead for Spring/Summer. I am excited to get some new projects started and to spend more time in the studio experimenting & exploring. Summertime always has its own sweet rhythm.
