the flu. 
it got me.

A is for Antarctica

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008


as felicity talked about her Antarctica experience, i slowly made up a list of things that i like about the place:  

1. it is not crowded
2. the very few people there are probably not prone to whining
3. the place is beautiful
4. mt vincent is in its backyard
5. you get a lot of time to be alone
6. when you’re alone, you’re really all alone
7. you can ski, dive, sleigh (or learn to) just about anytime, anywhere

i guess that’s another pin on the map for me…

i miss art more than i would admit
