The Doctor is in

Un dia grande para mi. I'm feeling overwhelmed - in the best of ways - to have this fine honour bestowed upon me by the University of Victoria. And isn't Facebook just the perfect medium at a time like this, when I get to revel in all the kind comments of my FB pals back home even at this great distance.
Home for a week June 9 to receive my honourary degree and catch up with my family. Until then, nose to the grindstone here in Copan Ruinas, where the rainy season has set in and the new task of the day is to batten down the hatches sometime around 4 or 5 p.m. before the hard rain starts falling. And oh, the thunder - sounds like the sky's ripping open.

Congratulations, Jody! You are a very deserving recipient! When you're in Victoria you might think of contacting local furniture stores like Dodd's about the bed issue. He does lots of community service as you know and of course sells Sealy products. Raising money for the container to ship the beds and other donated goods just might be the most practical way to get your goals accomplished.

Congratulations Jody, on the most-deserved honour about to be bestowed upon you! Had intended to follow your blog after your departure but was caught up in community projects and finally got to it after reading the UVic announcement. It's truly another world, and thanks for sharing. What reader would have connected you, the accordion and Haiku? The world is very lucky to have you, and the breath of fresh air you deliver.
