It felt so good to be back in a bigger city and ride public transportation or walk around downtown. I'm happy that I still know where things are and can get around the city in relative ease. Andrea, Sarah, Shiv and I saw a bit of shooting for the new Cameron Diaz film, "In her Shoes," based on the book by Philadelphia journalist/writer Jennifer Weiner. No sight of Diaz though.
I got to meet a lot of people this trip back, which made me very happy, as a lot of folks I hadn't seen in two years. Devalina also planned a little Temple News reunion while I was there, so that was pretty cool. The reunion spanned many generations of the TN staff, and it was interesting to know where people are after their stints at the student paper.
Babies are so much fun, but have so much energy. Trying to keep the bhaj occupied wore me out; he's at this lovely age where he is curious about so many things and wants to delve into it all while being happy about everything. He is the best. I've taken many photos of him with the handy dandy camera-phone, and may post some recent pics of him if I'm feeling generous.
It's sorta kinda cool that the traveling has just begun: picturesque Bluefield, W.Va., next week.
