In loving, living memory, John Melançon 1928 – 2007
Leaving today from Grandpa's at Cape Cod after the clearest day i've ever experienced on Thursday and the warmest ocean water (global warming made real?) on Friday.
Sent her 279 Days to Overnight Success
Earlier conversation with Ed:
Great publishing-- Springer -- amazing quality of stuff
[your great ideas will not come into being]
until you find the one other person
who balances you
make a presentation at the Sloan school
Not enough book work done today but a fair amount of other cleanup, but a walk to the woods and a successful dinner by both Mom and R's standards, and a
Before that, a day at the Cape, saw Grandpa just in the evening and the morning. We went to the graphics / print shop too, my first time there, R loved it.
Delightful women on either side of me, overlapping visits in Natick from South Korea (OK, well really more Southern California) and Switzerland, and another on an online call. Good catch up and launched her web site!
H got onto the journal she wanted!! They called a day late (two days late, actually, i guess) but she's in! Bit of a rare honor for a first-yearer!
Walked N downtown. On the former railroad tracks. Apparently no one has walked the stretch from Whitney to the train station in a while. Not all winter anyway. Lots of fallen trees to climb through, thornbushes encroaching, and the soggy area under the bridge appears to be more like a foot or two of water, which at unevenly frozen was quite interesting to walk over. Rusty broke through but fortunately was able to back up.
I can't believe it, but Worlds are actually finally here and so my quest for the world record in the 200m resumes. I leave the country today for a training camp in Australia and then on to Christchurch, New Zealand. Competition begins January 21. While I am gone, I might have sporadic access to this account. As much as I'm there focusing on what I'm there for, I do like to know what's going on back at home especially because I still have to wait until the end of Jan for competition to actually begin!
No one else is allowed to visit Boston for a little bit, because i have officially spent my last dollars.
Lovely time, conversation at My Thai (the former Buddha's Delight)
Picked up Nadia at Logan, a little late.
C was very patient during the interruptions.
