After a very hectic four days in the city, I happily am out in the Hamptons in Amagansett with my family, where we are visiting our good friend, Moe Schwartz, for the weekend. My bag contains five books, two knitting projects and enough clothes to keep me dressed for a month. At home I typically wear a bathing suit, shorts and a t-shirt for most of the weekend. I have packed four pairs of pants and six pairs of shoes, not counting the ones I wore on the trip out. I seem to harbor some mentality that I need to be prepared for anything, even if the forecast is for steady sunny skies the entire weekend.
