As I was doing the Facebook application, "My Year In Statuses", I was reminded that this year is to coming to a rapid close. These days I find that I am never inspired to write here until I feel that something is ending/beginning and reflection is in order. More to come on that but in the meantime, oh, the places I've gone.
*Union City, NJ (I could Isha's house since it's leaving NYC but it always feels like a reach.)
Sarasota Springs, NY (Yaddo!)
*Washington, DC (Wedding+Visiting Family)
Atlanta, GA (On the jury of the Atlanta Film Festival)
Shelburne Falls, MA (Silent Meditation Retreat)
*Boston, MA (Visiting Lauren at Harvard)
Provincetown, MA (Vacation)
Trenton, NJ (Pushing the Elephant film festival)
Paris, France (Vacation)
Amsterdam, the Netherlands (Vacation/International Film Festival Premiere of Pushing the Elephant)
This year, I travelled less overall but did cooler things when I did. In the past, I went to a lot more places but they were always for short periods of time for a panel or a shoot, a day or two at most. I look at these places and I can see how this was the year I left my job. I was clearly on some kind of journey at the beginning of the year.
* = places I've been to more than once this year
