Making Memories

I'm not ready to say goodbye. I don't think I ever will be. I think the key here, for myself at least, is to keep reminding myself that this is temporary, that nothing is forever, that I'm not going to Mars; I can and will be back. 

Spending this past weekend at a cabin on a lake in a remote part of northeastern Pennsylvania was one of the most memorable weekends I can think of. Despite coming down with some sort of foodborn illness from the Au Bon Pain in Port Authority (won't be eating there again anytime soon), it was a kind of magical weekend that just seemed to cooperate with the whole "goodbye" mentality. Family traveled in to spread well wishes, and the sky put on a show every night at sunset. And, on the last night, we did too - with some fireworks. I'm going to hold these memories close to keep me company, as I get a bit homesick in the months ahead. 

PS- these are just a few iPhone photos; I have plenty more from my camera that I plan to add soon.


  1. "the sky put on a show every night at sunset" <--- loved that. your weekend sounded so lovely and just full of all things happy. I find it really hard leaving gorgeous naturey places like that and coming back to the city, too.Sometimes it's really hard to switch gears like that.

    And I actually found the black and white movie event through the site sosh- and they have a NYC one too!! It's just a site that lists everything that's going on in the city that week, you should totally check it out :)
