Just a short post today as I prepare to drive home from New York City. This has been a great trip, and I’m so grateful to all the wonderful people that I was fortunate enough to meet all over the Eastern US. Thanks to my friends Carl and Jaime in Atlanta, for opening their hearts and home to me. To my friends Robert and Mylene who invited me to come to Saint Augustine for Christmas, without them I would probably not done this trip, thanks guys! To Sony and Kinte in Savannah, how nice to meet you both, I’m looking forward to being back in your beautiful city and hope to see you again. To Ida in Charleston, who was so incredibly welcoming, interesting and fun to talk with, thank you! Also in Charleston, Randall, you made Charleston such a wonderful memory for me, and I’m so very thankful to have had the chance to meet you. I know I’ll see you again soon my friend! Andi and Kirsten in Charlotte, how cool it was to have lunch with you both, I just wish that we had more time to talk. This means that we have unfinished business, and have to catch up at some point soon I hope. I look forward to seeing you both again. Cheers to Andy in D.C. for being a great guide, how lucky for me to have that chance encounter, I learned a lot form you. One more person from Charleston that made it such a great time in that city is Dominic, it was great to see the city through the eyes of an up and coming photographer with so much passion for the craft.
Lastly in New York City, a big thank you goes to my cousin Bonnie and her husband Paul, old friends Todd and Laura, and to new friends Scott and Ron. What fond memories I will have of this road trip, and while the places are beautiful, it’s always the people that make the places so memorable. My gratitude to all the wonderful people that I was able spend some time with on this journey, it has been my privilege.
Today’s photo is the first sight I’ll have as I drive on in to my parking garage in Montreal at home. It has been a month on the road, and I’m looking forward to seeing friends, family, and my little buddies (cats). I just wish I could click my heels 3 times, and say — “There is no place like home…”
