A son in London training on Hempstead Heath to run the London Marathon on April 24. A daughter-in-law at a conference in Delhi and flying back to London as I write. I sit at my computer in Seattle and follow other people’s travels. Hoping to travel myself before too long. London calling. The recovery from the hip replacement surgery is slow. Other muscles and joints are protesting. My Middlebury College Gamaliel Painter’s Cane – a gift from the college at our 50th reunion – is coming in handy.
