It’s 6:22 am, and in a few minutes I am going to move into gear and start the day of travel leading to 2 weeks in Michigan, in s house on a lake that A’s family built 90 years ago. This is my third visit, and it’s amazing how this house and this town have become a home place for me; a place I think about when I am not there, and look forward to coming back to.

As a native New Yorker moved to the Bay area, I have no Michigan roots of my own, but I love it there…and look forward, every year, to learning more about the area.

This summer, I have big plans:

  • swim, hike, bike, row, walk as much as possible
  • read, nap, relax as much as possible
  • write the product specs for Oakland Local and the related tools we want to build and get them back out the the team and contracted to build ASAP
  • finish a tiny bit of client work I still need to complete
  • write poetry
  • read books
  • blog and surf as much as I want to
  • appreciate A, my wonderful partner
  • miss my dog (but sleep later)
  • I will be online, but further off the grid….can’t wait,
