In less than a month, I'll be leaving again for London...lots on the plate this time; I expect to make it around to the three schools I've visited in the past; working with the Wren clinic plus clinic hours in north London; a client workshop; and a mini-vacation to Cornwall in the extreme southwest of England to see Lands End, Mount St Michael, Penzance, and sleep in St Just. If the weather is decent (please Lord) I hope to rent a bicycle and travel around the peninsula that way...we'll see.
Meanwhile, quite a bit of travel has taken place already...two trips to Fayetteville, one for the purpose of taking a class with Brenda Messling, another Arkansas certified teacher of massage techniques...also been to Little Rock to work and teach a CORE I class, and next weekend we're off to Texas to see daughter Molly in a two person show "Educating Rita' as well as help her and the family move into their first house, and to dangle the young Henry (10 1/2 months) on our respective knees. So we're quite looking forward to that.
In the present, however, just enjoying the spring! The sunshine is great, though ready for rain, but the yard and garden is spectacular, other than the weeds. Each day or two I get out and get another challenge finished. Last night, the leaves out of one more bed of ground cover; fences have been cleaned and sealed and in general we sit on the back deck and practice gratitude. The wisteria and pink dogwoods and redbuds make my yard and garden heaven.
So looking forward to the next London experience. I'll be back with Elizabeth in Little Venice, traveling on arrival to Cornwall, seeing friends, clients, students in Yorkshire, Scotland and London and hope for a day at Hampton Court to see how Henry VIII lived. It's a grand life.
