Since Monday I have been dancing around Melbourne. There have been stories, soul circle members, and many written words.

No computer access has been an interesting experience. Although my handy iPhone is holding it down until I return home on Sunday, I will openly admit I miss the sound and feel of eagerly clicking keys each day.

Trip highlights so far include dancing to records at late hours with minimal clothing and a collection of Melbourne’s finest and the birth of niece #3 who was welcomed to the world March 16!

The lowlight was definitely catching toe on the tram track during our annual St Paddy’s day romp and sacrificing valuable knee skin trying to land the fall. The worst part is it wasn’t even an alcohol induced crash… I’m just clumsy.

As much as I have ‘give me my laptop and wireless before I bite someone’ syndrome… I know that stepping away from the plastic box for a few days needed to happen. It’s forced me into a neccessary break that wouldn’t have happened otherwise…

You wouldn’t believe all the ideas born lately… my favorite involves getting back to the States asap… I suddenly realize seven years away might just be enough…
