I wish I could say that traveling was an easy, effortless thing for me, but it's just not so. It takes me forever to prepare for departure and close up the house - even for a simple weekend with family - and just as long to decompress upon return.
I'm just back from a wonderful ten days in Boston - ten days that included a planned convergence of daughters (so rarely all in one place at the same time), a family birthday, a college reunion, some fine dining, some fearless city driving, the usual delightful interactions with grandchildren, a first encounter with one of the youngest of the new generation of second cousins, and an elegant wedding with assorted peripheral events. Not to mention a bit of sightseeing and even some cultural stuff. Over the next few days I'll post a few photos with commentary, but mostly I will be attempting to slip back into my normal routines - if I can remember what they are.
