where I'm at today

I think the pictures speak for themselves.
I am a very lucky lady.

Thank you Liz Engleman and the Tofte Lake Center for bringing Emily Conbere and I out to a cabin on your Boundary Waters, taking away our cell and internet vices, and giving us a week of the most stunning quiet to work on our play.

And thank you Tucker Hollingsworth for your absolute picture-perfect proof of the beauty.

"we used to write letters"

Arcade Fire continues to be one of the most inventive and brilliant collections of artists around. I love their new album (especially "We Used to Wait" and "Sprawl II") and this is probably the coolest video I've ever seen.
You enter the address of the house where you grew up. And you get your very own video.
It's incredible.
Check it out.

Happy Labor Day while we're at it! Try to make it to a park/backyard today and indulge in some food that comes in buns, chip-eating, white-clothes-wearing, and other summer activities. Today is officially the unofficial end of summer.
