I went to Kentucky, and it was O.K.
... but that was last Saturday. We road-tripped with our friend M. to have a look at the Lexington area to see if he might like to live and work there. The public library (first stop on our list!) was pretty awesome. It was several floors high, and had a permanent bookshop in the basement, as well as a Foucault Pendulum in the center of the floor plan.
Today's mini-roadtrip brings us to Fayetteville, WV - near the New River Gorge Bridge - home of the Cathedral Cafe. The Cathedral Cafe is my second-favorite place to eat in West Virginia.
The coffee's good too.
I just decided to take myself out for a spin and go somewhere beautiful and comforting. The drive here is twisty, turny, up-mountain and down, but lovely with the sun burnishing the sparkly snow. The waterfalls are starting to flood down the sides of the cliffs, too, which is a sure sign that Spring can't be too far away.
When I'm feeling odd or out-of-sorts or uncertain, there's nothing better than bashing my brains out with a little natural beauty.
