Poem for Thursday and Farewell For A Few Days

Collapse )

Today: Deal with doctor, finally get kids' hair cut, get van packed, double-check with neighbors about picking up errant UPS packages. Tonight: Pittsburgh. Tomorrow: Terre Haute. And after that hopefully I can get online from Springfield.

I am sure that I have failed to pack something of critical importance. I am assuming that most things of critical importance can be purchased if need be in a Wal-Mart somewhere along the way. This is probably a very grave error in belief, but at least I know what I have NOT forgotten: my kids, my camera, my underwear, the discs containing everything I have written for the past ten years.

Please write. I'm feeling strangely abandoned, even though I'm going to see people on this trip whom I haven't seen for months or years.
