On the minus side - no book sales and some minor inconveniences. Plus David spilled tequila on my laptop, so now I find myself writing this on the iPad. Not easy.
This morning, while in a workshop, the cell phone rings. It's mom. The woman in front of me shushes me, I am flustered, I say "cannot talk now" and hung up. Later I try to call her back but I can't connect, spend a couple of hours attempting to call Greece from my cell phone with no luck. I am frustrated. I am anxious and angry. Finally I connect with my cousin and relay a message for mom. She has a knack for calling at the most inopportune times.
This year was very different for me. Very different: few friends at the conference, fewer classes, altitude issues. Tomorrow I'd like to go to the library and to shop for shoes. Anyone interested in a pair?
