A house in the woods

It's been a busy month with sadly not much writing or drawing going on. We are packing up for a move once again, this time to a little house in the country:

It's been a long time since I've lived in the woods, twenty years I guess? Since leaving home as a teenager I've lived in Richmond, Virginia, Providence, Boston, San Francisco, and most recently Northampton, Massachusetts. Lately though I've been feeling the strong urge to live in a remote, beautiful, quiet place. Maybe the work of taking care of a baby has become enough stimulation and I need more of a calm, relaxing environment. Or maybe I've just come full circle and want to raise Tilda in a place similar to where I grew up. Either way, I'm excited to see where the change of environment takes me personally and creatively.

More soon once we settle in!

Tilda is a doll! She seems to have grown so much. I hope you, Bruno, and Tilda enjoy your life out in the country.

Even though I grew up in a city--a long, long time ago--there were still a number of open spaces/fields of grass where we kids could play. I lived within walking distance of two ponds where I skated in winter.
Unfortunately, the area has been built up a lot in the decades since I was young.

Anna! It looks so perfect -- can't wait to come visit.

Intersting, about wanting to give Tilda the kind of childhood you had.
