Lucia has something to say

I'm gathering. Gathering my life together after traveling.

Looking through the mail. Picking up library books I had on hold. Catching up with a few favorite blogs. Nibbling on gouda picked up in Amsterdam. Thinking about life. Thinking about my amazing friends. I drove through nasty snow last night to collect my dog who I had left with a pet sitter nearly a month ago before going to Rwanda. Gathering. And collecting.

On the trip I was on to Rwanda, photojournalist Gary Howe was with us. He's got some amazing photos posted of dancers from one of our stops. Take a look at There are pics of my trip that are much better than you'll see here. Leave him a message if you like 'em! (No, that's not me there in the foreground.)

I have 10 whole days before I need to fly again (Berkeley)!

After Rwanda and Guatemala will Berkeley be a let-down or a relief?

Genoa, garlic spread, and a nice crunchy loaf of bread. Chilled bottle of Red wine....porch, light wind, florida citris blooms lingering in the air. The perfect topping, my wife smiling, while she slaps my hand away from grabbing anouther piece of salami.

Your post is going to make the above happen. You made me realise how much I need to take a little time out and my memory of past relaxing moments took over.

I hope you get a break...and take it.

Those pictures are fantastic. So colorful! Although I was disappointed to read there wasn't one of you in there. Not that it matters of course. ;)

Sanjay you cracked me up with that one.

Lucia, have fun at Berkeley and don't think that just because its a domestic trip we wouldn't care for more pictures, cause we would!

Gouda, one of my favorite cheeses...what a heavenly meal you ate.

Gosh, you must miss your pooch when you're gone from him so long!

(I may have to leave my Charlie-boy for 10 months if I go to England next year...sigh...)

Hope you can relax a bit!
