So that decision I was making. . .? I made it! At 8 pm last nite. And that decision means I have to leave London, in a little less than one month's time. It's not what I want but it's what has to be, as I've not had any luck finding any thing else (job, visa) to help keep me here. And eight months is a long enough limbo. Thinking forward to 'home', I think of rural North Carolina and all the things I love about it. And although these photographs by William Eggleston are of William Faulkner's mythic Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, not NC, they come pretty close to feeling like home. Though today I am teary-eyed and scared to bits of what happens next, at the top of my 'to-do' list is to max out my last few weeks in London. Any recommendations?
