here, in san francisco
it is November.
Just like the city I left, Montreal,
it is indeed November.
however, in my new city, many of the trees still have their leaves.
their Green Leaves.
There are flowering bushes and shrubs.
They're actually Outside.
Right now, in Montreal, they have snow.
for California, this is not at all bizarre.
But i'm not accustomed to
this sort of climate.
so for me, this is all Very surreal.

I've never had a cowboy room before.
There are buffalo on the bedspread,
moose on the wallpaper border, cowboy images
all around the room.
It's so much fun.
No cell-service here though.
we have a gps in the rented car.
it's been a huge help with finding our hotels.

This morning, we drove
out of Wyoming. Mountains,
Horses, Cows, Sheep. Mules, too.
