Musical distraction

I'm thinking of taking up the piano again ... it's been a while since I've tinkled the ivories, but I need something to fill the lonely hours on my own. Oh Glammy, how I miss you! Your letters from England lift my spirits to no end; I spend hours on end reminiscing the time we spent together this past summer. I am going to practice diligently so that I might play for you, that is, if you ever come to visit me here in Canada. How sweet that would be.

Close Call!

Yikes! Had a close call while the mountains this past weekend. This guy's breath was terrible! Luckily I waddled my way out of this! Glammy, if you reading this, rest assured, I'm fine.

Fresh Canadian Mountain Air

Decided to get away from it all and headed to the mountains for a 3 hour hike ... ending up at Elbow Lake. Phew! It was mighty hard work waddling over 2,000 ft straight up a mountain but the icy cold lake at the end, was worth the work!

Parting is such sweet sorrow ...

They say all good things must come to an end. Who are "they" and why, oh why, do "they" have to be right about that?!

I cannot describe to you how heavy my heart was watching the train depart the Moreton station. Glammy has gone home, and our time together has come to an end, but the friendship we have forged over these past months will last a lifetime, of that I am certain. I will soon be returning to Canada, and will be separated from the love of my life. We have committed ourselves to keeping our friendship alive. I am hoping and praying Glammy will accept my invitation to come to Canada for a visit. Deep in my heart I know we are destined to be together, forever.
