We arrived back in Montreal around 9:00 pm last night - it was a long drive but easier coming up I-95 and I-87 than the trek down through Connecticut and lower New York. I wrote in the car through the Adirondacks, trying to outline an essay which we decided to send to the Montreal Gazette along with a portfolio of photographs. If they don't take it tomorrow, then of course we'll publish it here; otherwise there will be a link.
I had hoped to edit some videos I shot, but didn't get to it today; I spent the whole day trying to write the essay I'd started in the car, encapsulating the experience, and I only think it's partially successful. Maybe a fresh eye in the morning will help.
Thanks for all the comments; I appreciate your reading and everything you've added, and am sorry I haven't been able to respond individually as I usually try to do. Back to normal blogging soon!
