A sort of homecoming

Dear Readers,

Yes, the rumors are true. We are back in Canada at least until the new year, and on our way to Toronto. It has been too long!

I've been busy with my travel blog, but haven't published any new novels recently. This means that instead of building a visit around a book launch or reading, I have months to get together with friends, at your leisure. Oh, and write, of course.

So if you are in or near my adopted hometown, let's have coffee! Or beer, a walk around High Park, whatever. I am really looking forward to it.

See y'all soon,

The Discreet Traveler

A Franciscan Benediction

May God bless you with discomfort: at easy answers, at half-truths, and superficial relationships; so that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger: at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed: for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
