Toronto Rehab...& Vancouver!!

I am not concerned that I have no posts to my last journalistic attempts to capture the feel of the 'Maid of the Mist' experience and soon I shall need to start downloading some more pics to make it visually interesting. This takes time and internet cafes are not free....anyway the talk at Toronto Rehab went very well. It was an hour long last wednesday and prior to it Pia treated me to lunch at a great veggie cafe near where she works. She has just come back from a major conference on Personhood in Dementia in Sweden and apparently it was a great success. Pia and I have spent some time together talking about our work and what we are both seeking to achieve. I found her comments really helpful in relation to what I may be able to do back in the UK by way of a possible post-doctoral fellowship - if I choose to go down that road.

Now in Vancouver...Amy bashing me over the head with a brolly to get me off this machine right now - so that we can head off to Stanley Park and the world famous aquarium. Sight-seeing today....MUST GO>>>

  1. If you bump into either of my cousins in Vancouver or at Lucy at the S F University - say 'hi' to them for me. Oh, yeah, admire some of the buildings in Vancouver, especially a 'high rise' - my Uncle was its architect.

    Take the boat to Vancouver Island - it's a beautiful trip.

  3. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
