Black Jack didn't comment but she always supports Bill, even when he places..
So, you ask, "What's the plan?" Well, it has 2-steps:
1. One hour to write a blog post in the evenings. When the hour is up, the post will be published, no matter what has been written.
2. One hour to read other bloggers' posts and leave comments in the morning. No more feeling guilty about the many much appreciated comments that have received no response.
So here goes! I've already used up 25 minutes so this will have to be quick. Today, Lan, a former student, took the ferry from Nanaimo to spend the day in Vancouver. In the morning, we explored this antique shop. It's called Salmagundi. Here, she explores these drawers that make you feel as though you are being just a bit naughty when you open them, but they are put there for that very purpose.
Lan discovered a collection of old maps and loved showing me this one of Paris. She spent four and a half months studying in Paris and she loved the city and countryside around it very, very much.
She also discovered this diary. Anyone can write their secrets in it.
Some of the confessions were naughty. That's why Lan's hand is covering the top portion of the left page. Some of the confessions were positively scary. But many of the secrets were heartwarming, like the one that says, "I found the woman I'm going to marry."
We ate supper together and then left Lan to do a little shopping before she caught the ferry back to Nanaimo. This was the view on Granville Street as we walked home.
There's so much more that I wanted to say, but my time is up for today. I feel honoured when former students spend time with me. That is one of the great rewards of teaching. Today was a beautiful day.
