Mind the Gap @ 11:13 pm




a friend offered to take me for a Road Trip
... to Pittsburgh
to pick up some paintings he left there
and come right back.
we decided to make it an over-nighter

drove out yesterday (leaving around 1)
arrived around 10
but the whole city was sold out of hotel rooms
(we were shocked.. i thought the city was a dead horse)
it does look like a beautiful city, shame it looks like there are no people in it...
but there are many houses
many hills
mountains
trees
bridges

i imagine it to be like Portland Oregon
is there anything going on in Pittsburgh?

we didn't really try and find out
we round a hotel nearish the airport
with a taped-up carpet
and beds that inflated via remote control
.
.
.

we got the paintings this morning
drove back quickly afterwards
but seeing as it took is so long to get there
it took us even longer to return
involving lunch at a crazy local Buffet (with homemade pies! and gigantic people) playing a game of checkers at the CrackerBarrel
and going for a walk in the Delaware Water Gap
... i hadn't done that in a very long time
i have many memories of the area
and
this is the first time i've been there with a good camera

i love my new camera
and i love the forest there
it was so beautiful

i got high from the walk
the drive was great for a perspective shift
and his companionship and conversation also served for inspiration

i threw the pics from the forest up (and a biker on the road, ahhh)
and now i'm heading to sleep

every day is a new day
