OK, so I typed in the title for this post and then thought, 'hmm...let me make sure I have that right', so I googled it to be sure it was a real word and that it was spelled correctly. I found it funny enough to share that the number one result returned for the search "westward bound" is a novelty PVC, rubber and latex clothing store out of the UK. Awesome! So, that's not the westward bound I was thinking, but what a fun little distraction!
MY westward bound refers to my weekend plans. More on that later.
Have you ever noticed the little Feedjit widget down on the sidebar there...the one that looks like this: (Where is the question mark in that sentence supposed to go?)
I click into that every so often to see where in the world my blog has been read recently. I can guess the readers who are represented by many of the dots in the specific places where I have friends, family, customers, etc., but I find it pretty fascinating when I have a hit from somewhere I've never been or a place where I don't know anyone.
So, that brings me to my title. Martin and I have booked a quick weekend trip to San Francisco because I've never been and have always wanted to go there, and he's been but loved it so much he's happy to go back. I'm often so inspired by being in a place far from home and I'm thinking a quick visit to the West Coast will inject some creative energy into my blood for the upcoming fall production season.
This evening I checked the "Recent Visitors" map on my blog and noticed a few visits from the San Francisco area:
Hello San Franciscans...I am so excited to be visiting your city.
We have some loosely laid plans for what we want to do and see and eat, but if you live there or have been and have any suggestions I would LOVE to hear them. Thanks so much, and stay tuned for another studio update soon!
