San Antonio?

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2008 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I've never been to San Antonio, even though much of the Walch clan lives there. I guess the time was never right with school and all. Then today I saw Gordon Atkinson invite me to a Franciscan retreat at his church in San Antonio. Given that I look on with yearning at Rivka's SUUSI reports, this retreat could be a good way to ease myself into the spiritual retreat scene. And it would be an excuse to visit Kristen, Aaron, Lily, Gunnar, Anne, and who knows who else?!

Now I just need for my company to send me to conferences in Salt Lake City, Tallahassee, Seattle, Portland, Portland, Chicago, Bryn Mawr, Boston, Atlanta, London, Cambridge, Charlottesville, Mysore, Buenos Aires, San Francisco, Raleigh-Durham, Radovljica, Baltimore, and I suppose Los Angeles, so I can piggyback all my friends-and-family visits. (Tell me if I missed you.)

Who do you know in Provo?

Wahoo! Come on down...we would love to see you, and there's plenty room between me, my mom, David, and Joe ;) The weather is really nice this time of year.

Argh! I meant Salt Lake City, and I've corrected it.

Kristen, sadly I doubt I'll get to experience the nice weather of the early spring, since I don't graduate and the retreats won't happen for a few more months.

I've decided that if I ever get three wishes from a genie, one of them will be for a house whose front door opens wherever I want it to.

LOVE to have you come. We could finally have that writing conversation that we keep not having because I keep not callig because most of the time I'm trying to do about 125% of what I should.

Radovljica welcomes you with open arms whenever you're ready! :)
