The blogspot has been bare for almost a month. Just couldn’t be helped, really. I have been on the go, up in the air and down again and back for one work-related conference, meeting, festival, or all of the above. In view of the weather here in spring, and airline food notwithstanding, I have been more than happy to visit Tampa, Florida; San Diego, California; Toronto, ON; Cannes in the south of France; and even Niagara Falls. In all these places the sun has been shining, the flowers blooming, and the skies have been as blue as cornflowers. As I write this, I can discern a few yellow rays teasing the dusty blinds in my office, and so perhaps the winds are starting to blow a little more favourably. We don’t live here for the weather, that’s for sure.
