brief update

I’m writing this from Nashville, having just completed my usual 16 hours of driving + 4 hours of sleeping at a rest stop to get here from Ithaca. I’ll be here until tomorrow, then in Memphis until September 7, when I fly to Marseille. At some point I really must take a shower.

Some days are just too full of motion and emotion for one to properly sit down and write about it in the midst of everything. That’s what the last three weeks have been like. For now, suffice it to say that I’m happier than I think I’ve ever been, I miss Ithaca and the people there tremendously, I’m much more settled about leaving for France than I was three weeks ago, and it’s taken a lot of work to get to this point. Details will come in later essays.
