T-minus One Week

Today begins my final week at the Berton House writers’ retreat in Dawson City, Yukon; one week from today, on Wednesday, September 26, Carolyn and I depart for Whitehorse (the territorial capital); we’ll have a day of sightseeing there, plus me doing a reading at the public library, then on Friday, September 28, we’ll at last be back home in Mississauga.

It’ll have been a long journey. I left Mississauga on Thursday, June 28, 2007, flying to San Francisco for the NASA Ames / SETI institute conference on “The Future of Intelligent Life in the Cosmos.”

From there, I took the two-day trip to Dawson (rendezvousing with Carolyn in Vancouver), and we arrived at Berton House on Tuesday, July 3, 2007 — and, as y’all know, in the middle of my three-month stint here, Carolyn and I took off two weeks to go to China.

It’s been a wonderful, mind-expanding, productive, fun summer, and I’m sure I’ll look back on it fondly for the rest of my life.
