The Summer Day thumbnail

I can’t tell you how good it used to feel to touch back down in Albany after long stretches on the other side of the world. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and in this case I’d been away from my home country for about eight months — though due to my crazy travel schedule, I…

Christmas in the Capital Region thumbnail

Confession: I love the holidays. The music, the cookies, the ornaments, the cookies, the crafting opportunities, the cookies… you get it. Okay, maybe the confession is that I like Christmas cookies.

The Great Escape: Month 51 Roundup thumbnail

From the Caribbean back to the East Coast and out West again — it was a month on the move. I started and ended this month with two big trips, cushioned in the middle by a nice stretch of downtime in which to catch my breath. It was a pretty good balance, and while I had…
