Today is a day of both excitement and anxiety. We fly to the UK tomorrow for our annual series of lectures. It will be three weeks full of travel, of hotels and of restaurants. This means, of course, never knowing, from day to day, what obstacles and barriers we'll run into. To be sure every hotel has been checked and double checked for accessibility but, we've learned the hard way, that doesn't always matter.
Even so, we go with anticipation. After all the years of making this trip we know people there. We will be seeing old friends, perhaps making new, renewing acquaintances and shopping at Tescos. It's part of the year that we really look forward to, and we do again this year.
But we've found that our access to Internet is not always guaranteed and that the hours we work are long. So, though I'll try to post regularly over the next few weeks, I can't promise to keep up the daily posting. I will have my trusty journals with me so on days that I won't be writing on screen, I'll be writing on paper. I do try to write every day, even if I can't publish every day. So, there will be stories.
I ask for your patience over the next little while.
There will be no regular post tomorrow, but I'm going to share two videos with you. Both of which touched me in different ways.
See you on Saturday!
