On the road again

I am off to Lancaster PA to visit my mother, who turned 86 this summer. "A baby," commented one of the women in my painting class.

I go via Poughkeepsie NY, where I'll meet up with my sister. It's a long way, at least 7 hours, no matter the route or the mode of transportation. Once there, it's another country: Lots of rolling fields, friendly people, slower pace,and much more casual clothes. Plus the Nursing Home world of the elderly. A journey of the soul as well as the body.
