My brother, amazingly, just got his pilot’s licence and yesterday he took me up in a tiny little plane to float over Raleigh as his first passenger! We were less than mile above the city so I could just open up my window and stick my face in the sky like a puppy. It was a good way to reminisce, say goodbye to my home for what will be a year. That’s it! It’s time to move to Ireland.
The last three weeks have been one long goodbye and if I didn’t get to see you and tell you goodbye it’s only because I dread & avoid them. Now it’s the final countdown: moving out, two weeks of the Upper Penninsula in Michigan & Ann Arbor, Carowinds and three days of Raleigh.
These were my last days in Raleigh. This weekend will be Asheville. I leave a week from tomorrow.
Goodbye Chris, goodbye Tord, goodbye Matt, goodbye Will, goodbye Jordan, goodbye Cailin.

My Method House
Again, another nauseous angle of our neighborhood. We were so close to 440, and foxes live inside the beltline. My house is just right & down of center (tan).
The Rose Garden.

Some astounding rock quarry off of Duraleigh that I have never been to. I think I should go look for it now.
