|A Toronto street scene, by Doug Taylor|
That bright, barn red streetcar in the beautiful painting
above has been my main means of transport for the
past month. I board it every weekday morning, at
exactly 8:15 a.m, to take me to my new job, at a
busy law firm, in bustling, midtown Toronto.
|The Cretan countryside, by Poppy|
On the island, this single cypress tree, just outside the
village, stands for our one and only bus stop. The descent
into town, via picturesque patches of vineyards, orange and
olive groves, was always a relaxing ride and a peaceful
prelude to tutoring fidgety, Greek teens in English!

Each trip takes precisely 25 minutes,
but the second seems like a lifetime ago.
Hope you can forgive me for not being able to visit
blogland lately, but after 8 hours of filing, faxing,
prepping and printing, I only end up in one place:
dreamland! Promise to catch up with you soon!
