The Runcible Spoon

End of an era

A three-month era.

I really want to put in an incredibly appropriate post from Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, which is arguably my most favorite book that ever existed. But in the event that this posts prompts anyone to go read it, I can’t in good conscience spoil it. So I’m just going to say, its really good, and, the quote is really perfect for ending one’s tales of traveling and relating travels to home and you’re just going to have to live with that explanation. Thanks for reading all of this drivel and looking at all of my photos over the past couple of months. Sorry I didn’t write up many of the commentaries that I said I would.

I’m sure I’ll be seeing most of you very, very soon, which is more exciting than you’re probably aware. Lots and lots of love!
