Swimming upstream

Guilty on all counts. I have taken far too long to blog again.


The first half of 2005 has slipped by so fast and my time in Toronto is winding down. What lies ahead, beyond the upcoming honeymoon in Cuba is anyone's guess. I have my bet placed for 'Happily Ever After'. Clearly, my partner's optimism is rubbing off on me.

I discovered some dormant German on my recent trip to Bavaria.
Muenchen is a wonderful city, Glockenspiel and all. To everyone who helped us, chauffeured us, befriended us, or tolerated us - thank you/danke.

The Bavarian Alps were walking distance from the NATO school in
Oberammergau. It seemed a very odd choice to locate that kind of facility in the only village to be spared from the Plague in the 1600s. Though this wasn't a Passion Play year, I could sense how important the tradition was to the community of 5,000.

I will post some pictures once I get them.


All is well between my current client and me. They (one of Canada's big banks) are happy with the service Cursive Communications provides. More news, Cursive Communications will be changing headquarters to Kingston, Ontario for Q3 2005.

I ran into Christos Grivas from
The Rights Factory, yesterday on the street after work. Once I finish my novel, I hope they will represent me as my literary agents. I met them last summer at a Media Bistro get together.
