I just spent 4 days in Denver – first visit ( & the beginning of my winding down the Sabbatical year tour) – and while I found myself a bit afflicted by the altitude, it was a beautiful, walkable city with a lot to offer a writer passing through in the way of writing spaces & writing surfaces & writing snacks and other refreshments. I absolutely loved their big Union Station overhaul. What a destination for creatives.
It’s no secret that I’m All Over The Map (Just check out my About page if you want to know) but my Writing/Reading/Swimming Sabbatical (based mainly in Texas) is winding down a little earlier than originally planned and to cap it off, I’m embarking on another few exciting trips before heading back to Toronto and my teaching life – A life I thought might wait until September, but since it won’t (it’s going to be starting up again on March 24), we’re closing off the Sabbatical with a bang (and a highly unfaithful ode to Shakespeare)! I’ve got to fit a few days in Denver & Dallas, over a week in Austin, (for SXSW!!!) and finally home to Toronto into these suitcases…
Ah, there’s the rub, for in this suitcase we call Big Red, (& her little sister)
What I’ve forgotten, or could not fit despite my toil,
To fill, to store, to bundle, to stow,
must give me pause…
Here’s hoping that anything I forget will be ok until May, when I’m back for a short stint to celebrate Birthday weekend with the husband.
