three weeks, three states and something like a thousand more in between. we have been on the kind of vacation that will be talked about for years. epic, almost. am currently swimming in dirty laundry and cheerful souvenirs. also, photographs. a preposterous amount of photographs. I am painfully slow to process experiences like this which is why I (sometimes) talk in pictures and lists. am predicting an overabundance of both, an unstoppable freestyle of sorts with no real beginnings or ends.
