this photo doesn't even need a cranky caption, does it?? no, we've gotten no new slush or snow or freezing slop in the last 24 hours, so i'm not even really complaining here, just illustrating march in maine.
in warmer news, bean is in north carolina for a long weekend of fun and a few college tours. today she and ellen took a tour of warren wilson college in asheville, and bean sat in on a world religion class. they also ate what sounded like some excellent vegan food. the postcard bean got from warren wilson had promised "crocuses, barefoot afternoons, and baby animals down at the farm." i think it was a little bit wetter and chillier than that (although bean reported that it felt extremely warm to her at approximately fifty degrees). she said she liked the school a lot, but that it felt very small and she wasn't sure whether or not she could imagine herself there. tonight they're driving back to chapel hill, and tomorrow she and david will tour duke, just for kicks!
m took boo to miyake for a special treat tonight (spicy crunchy inari rolls, no doubt), and when they get back we're going to watch la vie en rose.
