Have I mentioned I am going to Alaska this summer? ALASKA! Like… wow. So much for my extreme hatered of all things below 60 degrees. Still… ALASKA.

Very. Big. Smile.

Allan Shapiro’s The Butcher and the Breather is the best book ever! http://shop.notesandgracenotes.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=19&Itemid=22

I’m going. This summer. As a youth worker for teens. I can’t stop smiling!

I need to decide:
a. What to call my summer adventure.
b. What books to bring–I feel like they should be somewhat culturally relevant, right?
c. Where the cheapest place to purchase batteries for my camera is.

One of my Colorado friends said, “Alaska is like Colorado, but on steroids.” I am in love with Colorado (and sad I won’t be able to experience it this summer), so I can only imagine: even bigger mountains, amazing nature… I feel the need to cry or hug somebody.

Wow, I am so blessed.

Jack Kerouac

My official Jack Kerouac moment occurs Friday. Milwaukee to Chicago to Colorado to Chicago to Milwaukee in less than 24 hours.

Ideas for books to take on the plane would be useful! 😉
