Time to pack
It seems hard to believe that I haven't seen an Ohio fall in four years. The last time I breathed northern autumn air was in 2006 as I rode out my last days in academia. I make it back up there a couple times a year, but it's typically in the summer or winter months. I never would have imagined that one day I'd be wistful over the colors and sounds and smells brought by the droppings of deciduous trees.
This week brings a trip up north. Time will be short between work activity at The Ohio State University campus, the usual planned visits, and the inevitable unplanned adventures, but I plan on clearing some time to go crunching through the trees.
Now to figure out how to pack six days worth of clothes, a laptop, camera junk, etc. into one carry on bag...
