After getting home late last night, I was greeted by an enormous brown package carefully leaning against the metal gate of my apartment. I brought it inside, grabbed the ol’ box cutters and ripped it open to find this painting by Obi Kaufmann. It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever received, and a few weeks back, after spending an afternoon with Obi watching three California Condors whizzing by my head in the mountains of Big Sur, it couldn’t be more fitting. Thank you, Obi. Thank you, thank you.
No Trail Mix today, but check back next week for something special. CS and friends are off to the Hudson Valley in a few hours for a little camping and some well-deserved swimming. We’re hoping and wishing and praying for that hour-long rainstorm tonight that the weather fairies are predicting. COOL IT DOWN.
See you soon. And for goodness sake, HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND.
