Yesterday morning I got up at 6 a.m. and prepared to begin my journey from Ohio west to Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Nearly all the connections went smoothly, but it was a long day. I arrived here a little before 6 p.m., which was 9 p.m. EDT, nearly 12 hours of travel time. I have all of today to regenerate before the creativity workshop starts tomorrow. I'm staying at the Waterfront Innand have already had a morning walk around the little town of Sidney. The light is clear and bright today and the temperature mild. I sit on a little balcony and overlook the fish market on the pier. I'll be moving to another room this afternoon for the rest of the week. I hope I'll have as beautiful a view in my new digs. This truly is a lovely little town, sparkling clean, nice shops and restaurants. The workshop facilitator, Ruth Steinfatt, is very pleasant and well organized, so I'm looking forward to a delightful workshop experience here.
