One of my oldest friends Joy (we go back decades, to San Diego) will be meeting me for a weekend of reunion and gaddabouting around. Then another of my oldest friends from Toronto, Julie, will be taking me to her place in Santa Barbara for a few days, during which I'll be dropping in on my friends and colleagues at Stampington & Company. Three reunions in all!
This year is my year of travel.
In very early May, I will be in Oklahoma City for a teaching weekend at The Paper Crown. My Oklahoma peeps (as I think of them) graced one of my classes at Silver Bella and were among the kindest and most talented people I've met. I so looking forward to seeing them again and renewing friendships. The bonus will be a few days with my sister who lives one hour's flight away across the border in Texas.
The third trip, still in planning stages will be to Ireland; I try to visit the clan every few years, and it's been too long.
