Four grown kids, six delightful grandchildren, constant, long-time partner. A retired academic, I'm adapting to life in a Vancouver condo after decades in a waterfront home on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island. Keen to discover what new priorities emerge, what interests persist, in this urban life after 60!
Back home on the island, unpacking and thinking . . . and remembering glorious, if often stark, images from the trip into BC's interior. Such different landscapes than anything we have here on the Coast. I forget, until I'm immersed in it again, how much this beauty tugs at me. Especially the Nicola Valley . . . and moving towards Chase, where perhaps some memories from my pre-two-year-old days yet linger. . .
Again, thanks so much for the wise words left on my post about the emotional wallop of our family reunion. Still pondering that, and perhaps I'll say more yet. . . Meanwhile, happy mid-week! Tell me, what are you up to?
