DECEMBER 27 2011 : She had the loaded handbag of someone who camps out and seldom goes home, or who imagines life must be full of emergencies. Mavis Gallant.


Taking a double shift on the eBENCH today. I didn’t expect BETWEEN to keep gathering meaning for me.  Back when Dad was in his 80s and longing for death, they were transferring him from one temporary respite centre to another. One well-meaning nurse said to him “ think of it an a learning experience, Bruce.” He gave her his “ I wouldn’t piss on you from a  great height” sideways look and said “ I have had quite enough learning experiences for one lifetime.”

Well, that’s how I feel tonight. Another dratted ‘ between’ time.
