While I was in New York I realized I don’t like being in Pittsburgh unless my family is here. It’s not about Pittsburgh. I just haven’t made many attachments here, although Mary picked me up from the airport bus, so that’s one attachment I’ve made. I returned on Monday; Robin, Steve and Charna didn’t get back until Tuesday afternoon. They had a wonderful time in Chile. Charna said she wanted to chain herself to a palm tree and stay there.
School began yesterday morning with Art of China, the class I am auditing. Next week my Osher classes begin. I’m continuing with Tai Chi and taking another writing class and something called Caravaggio (about the artist).
My biggest problem on returning was retrieving my mail. I always ask the post office to hold it if I will be gone more than a few days. Usually that works well and they deliver it on the requested date. This time the system, if there is one, failed. My regular carrier is on vacation, obviously the cause of the failure. I finally went and picked it up, after some difficulty finding where to go. It wasn’t the nearest post office.
