To Whom It May Concern #2

Driving up to the Midwest at the end of the week. Champaign, Illinois. Iowa City and Des Moines, Iowa. Gonna see my Mom. Maybe my younger brother, if he comes down from Minneapolis. See some old friends--Scott, Larry perhaps--in Des Moines. Home is still home, at times.
Had a great trip to the British Virgin Islands last month: Beef Island, Tortola--Road Town--The Indians, Little Harbor on Peter's Island, The Baths, Saba Rock and Virgin Gorda, Monkey Point on Guana Island, Lee Bay on Great Camanoe, a day at Sandy Cay, Great Harbor on Jost Van Dyke (I met Foxy), then the Diamond Cay area near Little Jost, then White Bay on Jost, then a storm crossing to Norman Island and the Pirate Bight there. Sailed a 43 ft cat. Never been there before. Water water and islands full of scrub trees and cacti and lizards and friendly people and sandy bars; water water deep blue and green blue and white blue and electric Kool-Aid impossible blue.
There's nothing more to report.
