Busy Weekend--Talk Soon?

It's been a very busy weekend in Vancouver. I'm enjoying it very much but I do feel as if I've abandoned you all, and right in the middle of a rich and fascinating conversation.

So this is just to say that I will be back before too long, and I will be replying to all the wonderful comments about my post on memory. In the meantime, I'm preoccupied with belated birthday lunches; dinner with one sister; coffee with another; a comedy show with my brother, sister, son, and daughter-in-law, all of us watching my nephew MC masterfully.

I've shopped (getting the travel wardrobe ready for next week's departure), been waxed, had my face pampered, my toes painted, dropped my shoes off to be resoled, and been insulted by a stand-up comic over my age (hurt more than the bikini wax, that one! Ouch!) Worked my way through a long list, in other words, and I'm not quite done yet.

But I'm thinking of you, loving the conversation we're building about memory and planning to get back to it soon. If you haven't had time to read through yet, I think you'll enjoy doing so -- I'm so privileged to have many wise and generous commenters. Scroll down to see what I mean. And we'll chat more soon, okay?

  1. Busy, indeed! Can it really be only a week until your departure?

  2. As your trip is approaching and before I forget: Should you visit Lecce, the ice cream place I recommend is called ALVINO, it's in Piazza Sant'Oronzo near the Giardini pubblici.

    1. I've made a note of it, thank you! If we do get to Lecce, an ice cream place will surely impress the granddaughters (and their parents and grandparents!)

  3. Hi Mater, I totally missed the last post - we were in Ottawa last week, buying a house. I'll go back and take a look. How exciting - only a week to go until your trip!

  4. Doesn't time pass quickly? It seems that you just mentioned the whole family trip and now the time is almost here.

    1. Travel messes up the space-time continuum for me somehow. . . ;-)

  5. Funny, when we were in NYC end of 2010, I was also picked on by a stand-up - about my age (a grand old 43 then) of all things :) It was super-nasty, and simply because I was not finding the guy funny, so I wasn't laughing ...

    Enjoy your productive busy-ness!

    1. There's a hostility there that has a scarily uncontrolled potential. I'm still processing the experience actually. Can't believe that 43 would also qualify as old!

  6. Bon voyage and enjoy. May life fill you up with energy and inspiration!

    1. Yes! This is much of what I go back for, that energy and inspiration which fuel creativity and productivity. Thanks!

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
