Another day, and yet not like any other day:
* Went to church this morning with Mum
* Had 'family lunch' with Dad, Mum, Nadine and a delicious pork roast
* Went to see an amazing Quebecois film called 'Monsieur Lazhar' about an Algerian refugee applicant who applies to teach at a school in which a teacher has committed suicide and left the 11 and 12 year old students traumatised by the events
* Sorted through winter/ summer clothes in an initial preparation for deciding what to send to Hawai'i and what to give away here
Such insistent, strong, gentle links between pasts and futures: such a luxury and opportunity to take the time to reflect while in this 'in-between' space and time...
