Friday night, still full from Thanksgiving, I caught a red-eye to Albany and drove to Great Barrington, MA. I spent the weekend exploring Bard College at Simon’s Rock with my genius of a sister. It was exactly as charming as I’d always hoped a small liberal arts school on the east coast to be. The landscape conjured the inspiration of poets + a life lived buried in books. I loved it, and love that she’s there learning every bit.
