goin' to the homeland...

in a couple of days i leave for ny...and no, not ny city.... the finger lakes area with a stint in good ol' rochester. I'm nervous as hell about flying since its an EI/crip nightmare and also just a general nightmare anymore these days from the sound of it.

its a significant journey since i haven't been home...or anywhere but northern new mexico...for something like 6 years. and part of the goal of this trip is to look at properties to buy with my mother and to ascertain if i even want to live in new york. Its a different planet from new mexico and i've been here a looooong time now. i worry i've a bit of the "grass is greener" thing going on. For years now memories of home, the swamps, lakes, gorges and forests have been my safe calming space to go in my brain when things are stressfull...i fear i've made everything bigger and more beautiful than real life can possibly keep up with.

economically it sure would be nice if i'm into the new york idea since the money we have won't buy shit here in new mexico...whereas back home, in the keuka/seneca lake area, one can get a real house...big, old, lovely...with a barn and a bit of land. so we'll see...
i'm especially smitten with the fact that if you get between watkins glen and ithaca theres a goddam bus line to catch to ithaca...yay for rural public transit!

i'll take tons of pictures and post them for sure!

in other news, i was skirting fleeces in the workshop the other day and was just stunned at how gorgeous they are. this one is diosas...a good 13 pounds of wooly lanolin soaked goodness...
