it's official...




...i am now a resident of upstate New York. it is yet to be determined where i will actually settle and grow roots, but on january 3rd i rode a one-way bus up to my temporary home in Kerhonkson. looking out the window upon the snow-covered landscape, a combination of peace and exhilaration washed over me.

Good luck in Upstate NY. I am north of Syracuse NY - grew up in RI, lived in Secaucus, NJ, and then Pittsburgh. I moved here in 1992 and it captured my heart. Not necessarily in the winter when things are cold and grey, but definately in the other months. I'm lucky in that I work from home and my company is in NYC, so I do get to the city just enough and then get to come back to the soliturde of the Upstate NY area. Good luck.

Hey Cal!
We met at the Alabama Chanin workshop. I have been following your blog and etsy site ever since.

I am so happy that you are following your dream to live upstate!
