So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

I like to drive. When I drive somewhere new, I strictly follow whatever directions that I was given, just to be safe. On the way back, I sometimes follow the directions, but I also like to improvise. The second time I go, I go the proper way, and then, on the way back, I improvise some more. I start with small improvisations, like taking a parallel street for a few blocks. Then I get more daring, taking an unknown highway, or getting off a highway an exit too early or too late. In Paris I improvised, too, but it was with walking. Get off at a random Metro stop, try to find your way to the one you were supposed to be going to. Slowly but surely, you learn the town.
This week I have been driving around Pasadena, looking for a place to live. I've been doing a lot of improvising.
Allen St., Lake St., Hill St.
California, Colorado, Orange Grove.
Which ones will become old cow paths, and which ones will I never go down again? The streets of South Pasadena, with their pleasant green lawns and globe-like street lights? The area between Altadena and Pasadena, with its rows upon rows of shitty little over-priced houses? Empty lots, mansions, weeds, cacti, grass, "retro" fifties buildings, Ralph's. Grapes spilling over the neighbor's fence. Eating lemons and kumquats right off the tree. Southern California in all of its beauty and ugliness, crammed in together on tiny lots. Where will I live?
I'll have to improvise.

Tickets to China
Wednesday. 4.23.14 3:44 pm
Well pals, I just spent a lot of money on an airplane ticket to China. After I clicked the button, I lay on my floor, thinking, "That was a lot of money I just spent," and hoping that I picked the correct dates since my ticket is non-refundable. It should be a great time, and I'll get to finally see some yardangs in person, which is obviously a life-long dream. Ever since I figured out what yardangs were, of course. So more like a 1/4th of a life's dream.
My summer is shaping up to be pretty crazy:
May 1st-29th: Field work in Hawaii, finish writing novel
May 30th-31st: Climb Mount Quandary
June 1st-30th: Explore Colorado/New Mexico, finish writing grants, hang out w/the fam, climb some more mountains
July 8th-13th: Road Trip across the American West from Pasadena to Denver
July 13th-19th: Mars 8 Conference, Pasadena
July 19th-August 3: China
August 4th-August 6th: Drive back across the American West
August 9th-August 23rd: Ocean City, Maryland
September 1: Start job????
The hardest part is keeping it all organized.
And knowing what to pack.

I made a reservation in a Chinese hotel.
Now I just need to finish my abstract and conference registration, and buy my ticket to China. And get my Chinese visa, of course. All before July 19th, when I get on a plane at LAX and fly off to the vast western deserts of China!
The Chinese hotel is a four star hotel, but it only costs 35 USD a night. For those kind of prices, I could stay for a while!
