In Toronto… it was crazy but we made it…

Gal and I are slowly but surely getting settled in at my Aunt and Uncle’s place. It’s been tough for Gal to sleep with the sounds of my Aunt, Uncle, Lisa and their dog getting up in the morning, but I’m hoping that I can teach them ninja tip-toeing skills (even the dog) and it’ll work out okay. A groggy morning Gala is a dangerous Gala… 🙂

Otherwise, things are fine. I went with my parents and brother up to my deceased Uncle’s to help organize the contensts of his house. It was a strange feeling, going through a dead man’s possessions. It’s unbelievable how much stuff a person can amass over their lifetime. It was exhausting pouring over tools, ofice supplies and all sorts of hunting and fishing equipment. By the end of the day, we were all sore and tired. For the time being I’m driving his car, which gives Gal and I some extra mobility as she starts the push to look for a job around here. It gives us way more access to the city and the ability to visit friends and relatives once our schedule becomes somewhat sane.

I’ve got a ton of personal goals this summer and over the next few days I want to dive into them in a big way. This is the perfect opportunity for me to improve my artwork, learn some new skills and prepare myself for the future. I tend to get reflective like this close to my birthday, which falls on Sunday this year. With all the other changes, it seems extra appropriate to take stock of where I’m at and what I need to do.

This e-mail’s short, but I thought it would be good to let people know how things are, even if there isn’t loads to discuss. I hope everyone’s summer is shaping up well.

The adventure continues…
