You may wonder what it's like to travel somewhere for six weeks, especially when life doesn't stop for that sort of thing, and there are also books and supplies I want to share. Well, here are my bags on the tram to the Edinburgh airport.
Over the years, I've left quite a few items at Hollins so that I don't have to do this all over again every year. Things like my picture book collection, lamps, shampoo, summer clothes (that I don't need in Scotland), etc. I've got the whole system pretty streamlined. And if I miss something really important, Stan can mail it to me, as he stays in Scotland.
It's an odd thing to live this two-continent life, I'll admit, but it's doable! And faculty housing has become my second home. Of course, Appalachia will always have a strong hold on my heart. I'm back!
