Last week, I left Atlanta to meet one of my new besties from Israel in Austin for one stretched out weekend….
“We spend so much effort trying to keep parts of our lives hiden, even from our closest friends, but in those rare times when we do open up, it’s amazing how minor those secretes all end up being.”
I got to spend the weekend with my absolute best friends.
It’s pretty cool that we’ve each chosen such different career paths- there’s the sweet teacher, the hilarious law student, the smart PA student, the wise business consultant, and then me, the artist-type….
Things are getting quite serious with us….

The sweep goes on and on and on so obviously much further than the mind can grasp one hesitates even to go near for fear of getting lost in them and never finding one’s way out.”
From Mississippi up through Alabama (stopping at Dreamland for BBQ nachos!) to Nashville, TN then east to Atlanta, GA, and north to Charlotte, NC, our quest up north is in full swing….
