The final version is still not right, but its wonky self is what will end up in a suitcase. Hanji has arrived but hasn't yet made it to my doorstep, so hopefully tomorrow night I can start packing in earnest.
This is upside down but just as well. Milkweed and dogbane papers. I have been struggling lately with all kinds of normal human struggles and hope that this trip will knock me out of some of it. Like Dard Hunter said before his trip to Asia in 1933, “I rather dread the trip as it will be a hard, tedious one. It is necessary though as I am getting in a rut which is a bad thing and only a decided change and a certain amount of hardship will pull me out.”
