I have a new job, or at least job venue, I'm heart-broken over good-byes, the new bid list is out, we are leaving in a couple weeks to go home for R&R, we're selling our house, we're constantly trolling real estate sites looking at possible properties and then photoshopping in better furniture. Nina is here helping us have fun, this weekend we went to the long-neglected Tretrykov Gallery and we now have plans for the State History Museum. And I have ideas! A book, newsletter articles, a series of paintings, (Do I paint?), a TV show and a set of note cards. Maybe it's just that it's light until 11 p.m. and we are all, including the birds that sing all night long, manic.
These oh my god photos reminded me that we HAD to get out to Sergei Posad. Today we wandered around the monastery, and then Peter was so darling, he followed me slowly in the car while I walked around and took these--all in the same neighborhood.
