It was a bit of a change. It is snowing heavily, and 5º F as I write this.
We are back in Boulder to celebrate the Holidays, tie up loose ends, and say some farewells.
Also, AIROSMITH the Airstream won't be outfitted and ready for delivery until the end of February.
However, being transient in my own hometown has brought on some interesting feelings. I would not call it unmoored though I have always had a home-base here. I find myself sitting at breakfast in a hotel amongst visitors in my hometown. Like a visitor. Those who have moved on from where they grew up may not feel it, but I have always been here. This has always been home-base. This place is a part of my identity.
We do have places to stay, thanks to friends and family, and we are planning several trips, including one to move our son back to Boulder from Dearborn Michigan.

Once back in town, I took advantage to ski Vail with good friends, Shawn and Michelle.
Being with them in Vail recalls so many fine days spent skiing with their Dad, and my friend, Jon.
Christmas was spent with family here. Steff was happy that she didn't have to cook all of the cookies. Ashley provided a fine prime rib, and we had a wonderful time.
