I'm Off.


This fall has been incredibly hectic. This week has been incredibly hectic. Today has been incredibly hectic.

We're opening two shows at the theater, one right on top of another. This doubled-up schedule has been brutal.

And now that I've gotten free of my obligations, I'm going to France with my sister to spend some time with my dad and stepmother. Alas, Robb is still unable to do any long-distance traveling, so he will be staying home. If you have some spare time, give him a call. He would probably love someone to hang out with.

Here, for your picture junkies are some photos from the trip we took to visit my dad a few years back.

The famous poppies of France. I think every single wheat field I've ever seen in France is filled with blooming poppies. It's so insanely beautiful (and difficult to photograph).

A typical mountain village. When I look at these houses jumbled up on top of each other, I see the roots of Cubism.

Spices at a local farmers' market.

Yes, it really is as beautiful and France-like as you can imagine!

Oh Lisa,
I'm so glad that you were able to get your passport woes sorted out. It will be a trip that remains in your heart forever.

Safe travels to you. Your father sounds like a wonderful man. I hope France embraces you and your time there is as wonderful as it can be. With much love, gf

Wow, France. The best meal I ever had was in France but then again, dining there is something completely different than eating out in the U.S. I hope you enjoy the food, wine and dare I say, even the French themselves. Hopefully their attitudes have changed a bit since the election and they won't be quite so snobby to Americans as when I was there three years ago. Have a safe journey.
I can't wait to see the photos and hear of your adventures.

hey Lisa- I suggest you wear an obama pin or hat, that way you will get treated really well, if you want to be perceived as an american at all!

PS- tell your Dad hello from all of us, and hope he gets to feel better.
