I’m as ready as I can be for this trip. Multiple lists aren’t a guarantee that something won’t be left behind (the title of this post isn’t as whimsical as it is practical), but I’ve come fairly close.
No doubt a few photographers will tut-tut and tsk-tsk over this omission, but I’m not taking my laptop. It’s a simple choice: do you sit on a porch after sunset, miles from city lights, watching stars twinkle above an old apple orchard with a good friend, or do you sit inside and pore over the day’s take, knowing full well you can’t do anything about it. Yeah, that’s what I thought, too.
I’ll return in late October—thanks for keeping me on your radar screen.
