That is exactly the sort of e-mail I love to get. Because it means that this summer, I'm going with my friends on a road trip to Yellowknife. Why am I so excited? Well, to paraphrase Glenn Gould, no one who ever visits the North remains untouched. Do you remember the scene in The Muppet Movie, where Gonzo's singing about flying through the stars? That's me and the territories -- I'm going to go back there someday.
Wow. Glenn Gould and the Muppets, both in the same paragraph. If my friend Loretta ever read this blog, she'd be buying her plane tickets right now.
