On the Road Again!

from an American summer (go Pawsox!)...

to an English one (from here)

Sorry for the extremely long hiatus... I've been in the US enjoying a perfectly American summer (barbecues, fourth of July, beaches, potlucks and kickball games).  I've been working away at my favorite place in the world, the arts program I teach at -- fortunately, my boss was understanding about needing to finish my master's here, and so let me work half the summer and come back to London to wrap up!  So here I am, having landed at 6:30 this morning (OOF)...

Just waiting to get my "sea-legs" back -- I am staying with a very kind family friend, so I have a whole new orientation on the city and am eager to get out there and explore a new neighborhood!  I've even got a list of goals for myself while I am here: go to the Saatchi Gallery, explore the East End, find a bookstore I keep hearing about, and of course catch up with my favorite places (top on that list is the reading room at the V&A)!  All while writing a dissertation and applying for work... hmmm...

But of course, all good things come with a price.  Saying ANOTHER goodbye to the Boyf was incredibly hard -- fourth in eighteen months, though this was the first time I am gone for less than three months.  We've got an apartment he'll be moving into while I'm away, so a whole new life is starting for me when I head back to the States.
