This short trip took me to “

I thought of my friend Sylvia who is from this city, but moved to the northwest after she was married awhile.
I met some lovely people and the biggest surprise of all was coming face to face with three longtime email loop friends, whom I have emailed to for years, spoken to at length on the telephone but never actually met. These were great moments when realizing we “knew” one another, otherwise the mode for the day was know no one, focus on your mission, learn well, get energized and motivated, buy what you need and seize the time to refresh schooling ideas for next year’s curricula syllabus. I even purchased a few talks on tape, motivation over the summer months to come.
Short, but sweet!
