The best that you can do …the best that you can do
Is fall in love …”
I’m feeling kind of giddy here in these wee small hours of the morning, under what is supposedly the biggest and brightest full moon of all 2010. (Truth be told, last I looked it seemed a little fuzzy.)
You see, the giddiness is because I just signed up for BEA. I’m kinda feeling like I’ve arrived here in this book blogging world. Like I’m being invited to play with the cool kids.
Speaking of which, I plan to sign up for this tomorrow, or pretty soon thereafter, once I crunch a few numbers and see what’s what in the bank account.
I’m not sure what has come over me. I don’t know New York City (and I’m kind of missing my uncle a bit tonight, for he certainly did). I haven’t been there since I was in college when a friend and I hit the town for a day, I haven’t firmed up hotel or other logistics other than the possibility of taking Amtrak (we’re a do-able 2 hour or so train ride away).
My plans are as nebulous as that moon outside. I have no idea what I’m doing. Part of me thinks the other part of me is nuts. (I’m sure my mother, reading this, is thinking similarly.)
But … I’m being pulled to go to the city that (like me) never sleeps.
Tonight, I’ll blame it on the moon.
