Heading north

Packing.
Making cranberry orange relish.
Spending a little quality time with the cats.
Downloading more tunes he introduced me to.

I have my instructions.
An assignment.
Things to think about.
A musical touchstone.
A theme.
Messages to send.
When and how to send them.

A theme.
A focus.

Service.

And a rich and scary ritual when I return.
When we reunite.
On the Tuesday.
In a week.

Reunion.
Punishment.
Recommitment.

And in between?
630 miles round trip.
And no cats.

What's a house without cats?!

Back home Saturday night.

Happy Thanksgiving, you guys.

Even if this is not your holiday,
it's good to take time to be thankful.

Me?
I am very thankful indeed.
