flying solo

just got back from the big city.

it was a whirlwind weekend filled with family, ramen, and more family.
(stay tuned for my ramen noodle post)

the flight was long from victoria to toronto and even longer coming home.
this country is way toooo big !!

i flew solo this time, a first in a very long time.
my kids were getting ready for their first day of high school...
finally the strike is over!!!
 ian and harlow were also staying to supervise (haha...)

it feels so different to travel on my own, without my clan.

because i brought a pair of earplugs and forgot to bring my earbuds,
 i decided to treat all my time at the airport and on the plane 
as a semi-silent retreat... 

besides ordering my drinks and food, 
i did no talking, no movie watching,
not even small with my travelling neighbours (so not like me...)
it was just me and mark nepo's beautiful the book of awakening .

my semi-silent retreat was wonderful, 
but it sure is nice to be home to my noisy clan cave !!!



  1. You were in my neck of the woods. Hope you had a wonderful time.

    1. toronto was wonderful... i had a blast, just wished it wasn't so far away or i'd be back more often.


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
