returned again

yesterday, i was so wiped from my trip to New York that I slept for 12 hours straight. if the red-eye weren't enough on friday, i went out with my sister after the wedding, and ended up at a karaoke bar at 3am, singing They Might Be Giants, to a crowd of her friends, including 2 Irishman and an Australian -- lots of bad liquor in shot form.

the wedding was great, beautiful, in Manhattan in some rooftop studio place used for events and photography. with a grand gritty view of New York, the Penn Station train yard, the Hudson and New Jersey across the way.

The worst part of the trip, including the red eye, was sitting on the tarmac for 3 hours in our plane waiting to be released into thunderstorm filled skies.

The clouds, by the way, were amazing, both from the ground and above, but even more from above. As we finally left the ground, climbing towards our cruising altitude, the light was sublime, sun rays sneaking through the layers of clouds, setting the lowest levels aglow, dark thundertowers way off in the distance, the ground already dark and mysterious, every manner of cloud in between ground and sky. Have some decent pictures I'll put up.
