"Some days it seems as if all of life is about healing what happened in the first ten years, and then making amends for all that you unconsciously did after that."
Oh so true. I am working on this yet again in my own life.

It does sound like this trip has not brought all that that it night have. I like what you say about receiving, it's true that can be very difficult to do sometimes.

I wish you the best and hope that spring lightens your heart.


The workmanship in those dresses is amazing. I'm envious because I've never been outside of Canada and the USA.

Thanks Jane -- it's not the "little trip" that's a significant event -- that's business travel, plain and simple. Other things, though, are proving significant, though probably not more than usual. Thanks for your good wishes.

It sounds like you little trip is proving to be quite a significant event. I hope it all works out for you.
