September 1

Dear Kristin,

I'm so glad we got to see each other this morning before Scott and I left for Los Angeles.  UCLA Film School is a fabulous opportunity and we absolutely cannot wait to get to our new home, but of course the build up to this trip has been crazy.  We've spent the last two weeks cutting our possessions in half.  Packing.  Cutting in half again.  Rinse. Repeat. So on.  So forth.  By about 5:30 this afternoon, nothing felt that important anymore and we just wanted to get in the car and drive. So that's what we did.
Now we're in O'Fallon, Illinois.  It's wonderful.  It's just so nice to be making progress.

Tonight, on the interstate in Indiana, we drove past a back yard full of model airplanes.  They were all painted silver and mounted on poles to simulate flight.  There were tons of them and if I were a little bird I'd fly over all of them again and again to pretend I was flying higher than the real ones.  It was only a second.  Then they were gone. 

I am so exhausted and my head is spinning.  I've revised 67 pages of Antigone so far and I'd really hoped to finish another ten or so during the week but it looks like I'll be doing quite well just to get a facebook post up every now and then!

Tomorrow is a 12-hour day and it's all Kansas.  That baby's a straight-up rectangle and we're cutting right through the middle of it.  Hope to send you several pictures.  Though they may all be of corn fields.

In the meantime, here's one from this morning:
