This is my last week in Helena, Montana. I'll be sad to say goodbye to Sarah. We've had so much fun together! It's been nearly two years since we've been in the same place at the same time for more than two weeks, which made this time all the more special. I'm excited to take everything that I've learned in this past month back to California with me. I feel like I've grown so much creatively...and even emotionally. It's hard to express the difference I see in myself, but it's there.
My Volvo is about ready to get back to warmer weather. I've only seen a handful of older Volvo cars in Montana...probably because they've all died fiery deaths. My car is not in her finest shape at the moment. The cold and snow has definitely worn her down. On Friday, Sarah and I are going to to buy new tires for our cars! Making this plan made us both feel pretty old.. and I feel even older because I'm actually looking forward to it...Yikes.
I'll be leaving Saturday morning and taking two or three days to get down to Las Vegas where I'll meet up with Bobby Craig Grandville (more on him to come...!) Until then, I'll be enjoying the rest of my time in Helena. Today I'm sending my book proposal to Chronicle Books (!!!!)... Getting excited!
