Christine's flight home takes off in minutes. Meanwhile, those with an academic and postmodern bent may be interested in reading her talk: http://ideaspeak.us/you-are-here/ .

I spent yesterday threading beads on a double strand of monofilament. There's a clever technique where one does that, and then one can take a strand of yarn (or beading thread or what have you) through the loop of the monofilament and slide the beads off on to the yarn. I've been thinking about selling some of the beads and thought this would be helpful, but I feel an odd despair looking at the box of beads. So many ideas and hopes and projects....

Hrmph. I am going to see if i can fix one of Christine's broken necklaces in the box. I don't need to buy a focal bead. I can just fix it with what is there.

In the hour before i read your post, i was googling maps of the Canadian railway system and trying to compare it with my memory of a trip i took from Prince Rupert B.C. to Winnipeg in 1953. I began to believe the map and doubt my memory. No, i did not see Lake Louise through the trees at Banff -- it must have been some other lake by some other town.

Christine's paper is excellent. I know nothing of cartography and am very fuzzy about post-modernity, but i found her paper exciting, fun, and totally comprehensible. I was able to reflect on the previous hour in new ways.
