East Haddam, Connecticut
Mailing out checks to the government. Long roundabout drive. Things winding down. More video exports and editing. Running opposite Helen. Adam comes back. Dinner with Ralph's. Cramming into the van. Lobster rule in Australia. Fish and an old fashioned. Getting ready for the long day. Quiche, fruits, lox, and bagels for breakfast. Private studio visits. Getting ready for the locals. Quickly writing out my story. Show and tell. Running to grab a picture of Joseph's installation. Hearing Helen's story. Fear of grey areas. Wine and corn chowder. Xiao wants pictures. Bon Fire. Discovering the lighted path. Animals masks. Everything feels late. Grabbing the guitar. Letting go. Sick Joseph and drunk Xiao. Turkey carnage. Difficult discussions.
