After a hectic month of travel in May, June was a slow jaunt through my northeast haunts.
- The first eighteen days of the month I lived in Bushwick, Brooklyn, with Devan and her roommate Maddy
- While in New York, I spent time with a whole bunch of lovely people: Devan; Sean; Spencer; Kyrsten; Michelle; Valerie; Maddy; Chris; Alyssa; Hilary; camp friends Lychee and Pocket; San Francisco buds Brent and Caroline; Portland friends Craig and Maggie.
- I saw a couple of plays, The Play That Goes Wrong, and Oslo. I saw The Suitcase Junket perform for the second time. I saw the New York Neo Futurists put on their new show The Infinite Wrench.
- I ate at a lot of new (to me) vegan restaurants: Black Flamingo, Jajaja, Orchard Grocery, Modern Love, Toad Style. I went to the New York Vegan Street Fair.
- From New York I flew to Burlington, Vermont, and immediately left for a a three day music road trip with Dad. In Saratoga, New York we saw Dead and Company, the current reincarnation of the Grateful Dead, led by John Mayer on guitar. In Bethlehem, New Hampshire we saw Richard Thompson, of Fairport Convention fame.
- I took four days of solo time at Perch Pond, working during the day, and painting or writing at night.
- I turned 29 years old, and had birthday dinner with Mom in Burlington, at Revolution Kitchen.
- Just before the days slid into July, I saw The DuPont Brothers with Dad, at Hotel Vermont.
