The journey on the road began yesterday when I left my house at 5:30 am. Since then, we have driven about 500 miles, stopped in Philly for lunch with Josh Schurr, in Baltimore to see the water, in Arlington for a reading and coffee with Sarah Ferrara and Mrs. Dosch, and in Hamilton to stay with the Bouffard family. What a beautiful coast this is! And what hospitality we have been shown! Today we are off to the Shenandoah and then Asheville, NC.
