This is Rochester?
It's been 2.5 weeks of the indoor life: a planned visit to housesit then socialize with a friend. While life in the toxic US culture stretched this an extra week, it took just 3 days, a come-to-Jesus meeting with myself, and lovely greenspace to alleviate the PTSD.
I've been to Rochester on day trips, but living in the South Wedge neighborhood has been a much different experience. High school friend (!) Barbara has a gorgeous townhouse located where you can enjoy Highland Park (150 acre arboretum), visit the Mount Hope Cemetery (196 acres near the U of R), and easily pedal onto the Erie Canal Trail. Walk a mile and a preserved, regenerated neighborhood feels like small town life. If not for winter...
This was also a great time to be productive as the year is indeed flying by -- bike repairs, teeth cleaning, amazon necessities, mail delivery, and plans in place to sleep for the next 30 days. And so it goes, as I roll back into my little tent at Little Wolf Pond tomorrow.

Whenever I finally get time to catch up on your adventures, I sit in awe of where you've been and what you've accomplished while I simply managed to keep my crazy batch of "chicklets" from destroying the "farm". Hope you have a wonderful birthday and apologies that your card will most likely not reach you in time. Can't wait to fill you in on the real estate adventures. K.

KW! Still have an email from you pre-moving (?) but after reading it decided you probably had more to do than answer emails :). I'm actually 2 destinations behind here as my laptop decided to go to heaven about 10 days ago and I've been in the woods just wondering what would come next! Saw your text, thank you! Limited cell service, too. Can I just hide? Good to hear from you & I should be playing catch up in the next week as I return to nearly a week in civilization. Can I do it? :)
