Countdown

It's just after 2:00 AM. I've been up since 6:00 AM yesterday. I spent the last three days putting in a five-day week. All is where it's supposed to be, and I'm preparing for departure to Toronto. My cab will arrive in about 3 hours.

I've been thinking about Henry and just how easy it seems that life can simply slip away. You're here, then you're not.

Want to know what's really funny - in an odd sort of a way? Last week I went bike shopping with my sister. The next time I will see her will be at the airport in Toronto when I pick her up on Friday.

I made a point of scheduling a visit with my friends M. and I. in Ajax on the back side of my trip. It will indeed be a good feeling to shake hands with the man who was my best friend from grade four to grade 10. Of course, M. and I see each other fairly regularly, and almost sadly, with today's texting technology, we communicate more often than I see my own sister - both of whom I must travel to Toronto today to see!

I'll write a full blog post about my travels on my return. Until then, remember those whom you love, and let them know it.

Your faithful blog-o-spherian,

Dave

Quite the late night and busy week for you.

It is funny how much we have to work to get any time off. I've just gotten back to work after a week away myself. Worked my butt off before, and the piles seem to be taller since I left. No rest for the employed, I guess.

Have a safe trip. You'll have plenty of opportunities to let those close to you know how you feel during your trip. I'm glad that you are able to end your trip with a positive visit.
