I left Ithaca, New York early yesterday and drove over two hundred fifty miles to New Haven Connecticut to pick up a bundle of cattails. Another purpose of this excursion was to reconnect with a few friends. This trip affords the opportunity to reflect on the nature of the journey that began in Pennsylvania on February 9. Before I left, I set up a blog site where I could keep a daily journal of my adventure. In the beginning, my entries current. Shortly after arriving in Ithaca on March 21, I made two decisions. One, I would stay put for a while and use my blog to post stories from a previous journey that I for years wanted to trust to paper. For over two months, I have kept up that task. Today, as I rejoin with the present journey, I decided to use the next two days to mull over this story. This constitutes today’s entry. Tomorrow, I will post today’s musings.
