Once I arrived in Toronto from New York (after the excellent trip on the freighter ship)
I visited with kids and grandkids. I arrived in time for a visit with granddaughter Spencer, who was home from University. I also had a visit with Megan, a very articulate young woman, and was able to attend a few hockey games of Ben and Dawson. It is a privilege to see these kids grow up and thrive.
I spent most of my time driving back and forth to downtown Toronto for appointments and getting ready for my India trip and next stop Athens. I didn’t even have a lot of time for movies, but did go to see Bat out of Hell, a theatre production written with the music of the old rock and roller Meatloaf. It was amazing! I caught up with the Bk and my adopted family, plus many friends.
All fun and felt good.
Next year is decision time for me.
My sabbatical with the Canadian health insurance is up in September 2018 which means I have to spend a number of months in Canada or do I want to spend most of my time in the UK? (at this point l have no idea)
I am writing this after just arriving in India. The sun is shining and it is warm. October has perfect weather.
PS I also attended 3 Diwali celebrations (which I call Indian Christmas)
