My trip now feels very real. Much as I don't look forward to the long flight, Toronto to San Francisco, with a flight change to Santa Barbara, I'm starting to get excited. I'm looking forward to a visit to Stampington's fabulous people -- the cherry on the delicious cake. Meanwhile, I have a pile of things to do to prepare for my week away, and, I am told, there's no time like the present!
Life is a mystery, like the Sphinx. You never know what's around the corner, so you might as well "swing open the gates and invite it to supper" -- Della Reese.
