Looking forward to Thanksgiving, although wishing we could all spend it with the family in Connecticut or at Grape Hill. Too many obstacles this year. Looking forward to 2011 with unbridled optimism! Connor and Shane will be graduating from UW, Liliana will be through a tough honors pre-med year one, and I'm feeling a nice re-focus of energies coming on. Hopefully, Sue's school will not be battered by too many more cuts or even shut down. For me, a new leaf of sorts. After never marketing at all, I'm looking forward to reaching out to more people so that I have greater numbers of options and can choose my projects very selectively. And there is the summer to look forward to, six weeks visiting great pals outside Lucca, Aix, Bordeaux, and then some tourism in San Sebastian and Porto. All the octopus I can eat and nice wines at every turn. Hoping also to put up the arbor and maybe one more surprise for Grape Hill. Fun!
