Back to the Beginning

We are back in the land of changing autumn foliage and endless sporting events. Abraham is back at college; Matiu has taken his PSATs; Dani has just turned 12. Seven is cycling and playing tennis outside while he still can. He and I are renovating my father’s old workshop, turning it into an office so that I can move out of the basement. I have started on the new book. We think, often of our amazing trip, but visions like this:

Have, of necessity, given way to this:

Autumn Lincoln

and this:

    Hi
    A wonderful journey, presented in a way that made
    me want to be there, with travel poster pictures.
    Congratulations in putting it together and securing the sponsorship.
    Win – win, all around.
    Thanks
    Joe

    Roses, agapanthus and pungas! Surely that’s New Zealand!
    Your travels were wonderful to read, and I got a vicarious thrill (and not a little homesickness) following your Pacific adventures.
    Looking forward to that annual dinner party in the latter part of winter.
    Best wishes!
    Jenny

    Chrissie… glad that you’re taking over Larry’s shop.. a much better use for the structure than the past few years. The accommodations for artwork storage might be compromised (and we know that the basement isn’t great for that)… but I’ll bet that space could be found in Dorothy’s studio… given proper shelving and as long as it was out of her way.
    Keep in touch, I’m a supporter.
