"I love it when a plan comes together"

Ya know... when things are tough..... friends are very precious. Some friends go the extra mile....

i am very lucky that i have found such friends in The Heron Clan.

Back in March Raheretic suggested that i pack up my bags and come down and visit them. Unfortunately i was working (that was before the "i wanna die" virus")
It was suggested i could come in the summer.

And there it sat for awhile. But that whisper of a hope/plan got me through some pretty miserable days. When things would just hurt so much - i would take out the "visit plan" and hold on tight.

We moved from emails to actual chatting (thank god for the miracles of all things internet) .... one evening Raheretic brought up the possibility of a trip to the Ann Arbor Art Festival - my excitment grew

Yesterday - or maybe the day before - i heard from The Heron Clan. Plans were coming together - when was i coming (dates) .. a flurry of emails later and it was all settled.

Swan posted about it yesterday on
her "We are in Go Mode" post. Another flurry of emails between The Clan (as i am coming to think of them) and myself..

AND.........

it's official......

In July i am going to visit The Heron Clan!!!!

Thats awesome. It'd be such a treat to meet all of you. :-)

In fact, after Ann Arbor, I think y'all should swing up and around that big ol' lake and come and see ME! Yes. Do eeeeet! :D

Or Kaya perhaps you should come meet us in Ann Arbor:) We have a beautiful suite, and the festival is a wonderful experience:) We'd love to meet you too, but unfortunately, our work schedules are pretty inflexible now, ane we really couldn't extend our trip with a jaunt up to the U. P. that trip, darn it.

All the best,

Tom

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.

Good for you! Just keep in mind, when you're driving that going South is like going East...you stop when get to water and then turn. Ok? Folks who can follow these directions are called Americans...those who can't are still Canadian.

This is not true for Mexicans...I don't know why.
