 I realized yesterday that in three weeks I will be leaving for Los Angeles.The trip that was a long time away is now around the corner.  It's going to be fabulous.
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.
