new day, new city
posted by soe 7:02 am

My time in Kansas City has come to an end, but we had a great time & got some good footage for the project we’re working on.

Two fraught flights and a jam-packed late-night shuttle bus ride later, and we’re back on the East Coast.

We’ll spend the next two days here in NYC, I’m looking forward to it.

on the road
posted by soe 6:57 am

This is the first night of a multi-city work trip, which means I was so tired I fell asleep on a Spanish-language channel waiting for it to come back from commercial. I was just very confused when I woke up and found a telenovela on.

Otherwise, though, Kansas City has been very nice so far. I can’t wait to see it in the daylight.

I’m too sleepy to wrestle with photos, so use your imagination to enjoy a shot of a gorgeous magenta sunset along the horizon from my airplane seat.

New York at Sunset

It was still a beautiful evening when my friends caught up with me Thursday, and Eric, who used to live not far away, suggested we head toward the river. I didn’t quite understand what the hurry was (we all walk fast, but he was double-timing it and I had a heavy bag) until we reached the waterfront for the final moments of a fleetingly fluorescent sunset over the Hudson River.

Obviously he knew what he was doing…

A Very Seuss Welcome

Bradley, Connecticut’s major airport, serves all of western New England, including Springfield, Massachusetts, where Dr. Seuss was born. This is a new addition to the airport’s installations, since I last flew home this spring.

connecticut long weekend

Connecticut Dahlia

I dozed off with the computer open next to me last night without telling you all that I’ve come up to Connecticut for a final long weekend before starting my new job.

It’s good to see my folks, and I’m looking forward to spending the afternoon with my best friend — they’re better than a tonic at chasing away the collywobbles.
