hello!

sort of working backwards towards the weekend's activities. sunday, my sister patty and i drove north to duluth on the north shore of lake superior. it was absolutely beautiful- light breezes, bright sun, pre-tourist season, no bugs. they've finally figured out that having an international seaport in their city is a cool thing- what once was a bunch of warehouses, porn shops and strip joints (hello sailor, new in town?) is now an area of boardwalk, lovely hotels, restaurants, carriage rides, omni-theater, aquarium, museums. but you can still drive up the coast a few miles and sit by calm, wide water- and 30 miles north of that is wilderness. i love minnesota in that way- atlantic city w/casinos and hotels, and half hour later? trees and "you betcha."

life is lovely in this spring of sunsets.

wishing you the same.

king of mountains, translated as "the great one."

i am absolutely flipping out...seems i will be MAKING THE ACQUAINTANCE of said Great One this summer.

I AM GOING TO ALASKA!!!

i can't believe it.

i've got a friend who lives in fairbanks, and she's always bugging me to come visit. of course, i fantasize about a month-long driving trip, but that's just too much $$$. so she called me tonight, wanting to know if i would be able to visit this next summer.

i told her i really didn't have the money for a major trip, to my dismay.

to which she responded, "what if i buy you a ticket and pay for most everything? this is MY vacation too, and i've been working tons of overtime."

NWA runs a non-stop minneapolis/anchorage flight.

i'm going to do it.

i am totally flipping out.
