3,327 miles

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” -Andre Gide

This coming summer we are packing our clutter and driving...  And driving... And driving to Maine.

Where our little house on the lake sits and awaits our arrival.  It's been waiting for 2 years and we are finally coming.  We have concluded what we came to San Diego to do and need to tend to business on the East Coast.  As our friends have pointed out this is the farthest we could drive without leaving the country (yes, Alaska is closer... I checked!).

This was my conversation with my 8 year-old about it:
Naomi- Mommy will it be winter when we arrive even though it's summer here?
Me- No, we're not crossing the equator this time so the seasons stay the same.
Naomi- So I won't have a second summer?
Me- No, but as we drive we'll have to keep changing the clocks, because the time WILL change.
Naomi- TIME will change? Wow.

Hope you had a great visit!

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
