No Back; Only Forth

Leaving Sacramento after our daughter's wedding, Sue pointed out that this was the real beginning of our nomadic life. Up 'til now, everything has either been a dress rehearsal (our month in Vancouver) or a trip (to Montreal) or a temporary holding pattern until we had to go back.

A Light Between the Branches (FAWM 2011 #9)

Especially proud of this one. I conceived the a capella intro two weeks ago, recorded it, and then got nothing for almost two weeks. I didn't know what the song was supposed to be about, except in broad general terms. Then, instead of trying to describe the entirety of our travel in Canada, I chose … Continue reading »

Montreal 10th (and Final) Leg: Ottawa to Montreal

Note to self (#61)—Two weeks is not nearly enough time to cross two countries. Note to self (#62)—When you're rushing across two countries in only two weeks you have, like, zero time to get to know the amazing, generous, wonderful people who've made it possible; not just possible, but heart-filling good. The drive through Montreal … Continue reading »
