On the road again

I'm so glad my summer storytelling season has begun! It's nice to be back in the libraries, even with all the driving required. Yesterday I drove to Ponca City, OK for a library show, then drove home, after a nice lunch with the librarian and her daughter (thanks, Janel!). That was about 8 hours in the car. On the way back, going through the Flint Hills, I took a few pictures out the window.  

The Flint Hills cover the central part of Kansas. I know, these pictures don't show them as hills, but they are. Really. Not like the hills of Vermont, where I grew up, but long and rolling landforms, often with cattle grazing on them in the spring. Ask the Buddha.

Eight hours in the car, wow. I'm glad you had a good time in OK, and I must admit I envy you : what I wouldn't give for a few hours away from everything and everyone, nice and quiet and beautiful landscape all around!

Busienss travel was exciting the first two times I did it 23 years ago. Since then, it's work.

And I would not trade it for the world.

It was a long, long drive! ;)

I like those hills--so different from what I see out my windows when I travel in my area.

I like the little guy in the window too.
