A long afternoon and night of driving, until we finally hit NY state– and were greeted by falling snow. Found our new home at 3am and woke to the view below around noon. The day was spent getting provisions in Woodstock and preparing for the coming week (and new adventure).

We caught the early set of the Willie Pickens Quintet at the Green Mill, opened in 1907. Once a haunt of Al Capone and his Chicago Outfit, the Green was first known as Pop Morse’s Roadhouse– its current moniker honors the Moulin Rouge (Red Mill).

Soaking in the California light (at Big Sur’s Nepenthe, so named for mythical Greek sorrow-salve drug of forgetfulness) before heading back to the wintery East Coast after 3 years in ol’ Frisco. That Leonard Cohen-esque (the spoken word delivery anyway) Neil Diamond declaration I Am, I Said loops in my head: …nowadays, I’m lost between two shores: L.A.’s fine, but it ain’t home, New York’s home, but it ain’t mine no more!
