Maybe it's not guilt, maybe more a niggling sense that I'm letting someone down. Anyhow, I still lurk around your sites when I have a chance and now and then I'm back with a post. Forgive me. Visit us here in Nelson and I'll make it up with a nice dinner and canoe trip on the lake. Really.
A few updates via photography. I'll see if you can figure out which are which.
Keep the Beat, the local War Child Canada fundraiser took place a recently. A great success again with more than $12,000 raised to send off... and about 1500 visitors.
The 12th Annual Gentleman's Cruise A Palooza - 10 men, one 55-foot,vessel ,a 100 mile long pristine mountain lake, various intoxicants, cards, fire on the beach...you get the picture. It was really fun again.
The local osprey nest - a 15 minute paddle to the middle of the lake (photo by Anna). This is a very successful breeding area for these wonderful fishers.
Hope you are each having a swell summer (or winter if you are Lindsay)in Australia...
On a deeper note, in the words of a great modern philosopher, "I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying."

As long as you keep popping in with your latest news and wonderful pictures, all is good!
I love the pictures.
And yes, in answer to your question about men on beer.
I always miss people when they don't blog often (I have separation issues haha), but I am very happy when they're not blogging because they're out actually living life.
Will you be back in NY any time soon? I can see from the photos though how it can be hard to leave such peaceful surroundings.
Gfid - you're supportive, as always :)
Seraphine - beer and other things...
Nova - I hope we get back to NYC soon. I love it more than any other city I think. Vancouver is beautiful, Paris is romantic, Khartoum is exotic... but NY is NY.
Post when you are inspired & we loves it.
