Hi Sonia--my dear friend! I miss you so much! I am elated that you have had a chance to see my photos on Face Book--I have to figure out how to load more in here without going over the limit, because there are many fun ones to share.

School is very busy--I have four classes at masters level, so the work is a lot and intensive, but two have not started yet, so it has given me a little window to get done some of the work for the first two, which is always a a relief.

My daughters are back to school this week and it presents its own kind of challenge on my sleep and driving them in/getting them home etc. They are returning to dance classes this year with a new teacher so that too will be new and challenging, but lots of fun Ia m sure. Stay in touch--check out the snaps I took in Philadelphia on Face Book--we went to the center of the city on Sunday before our Labor Day Monday (holiday) and had a lot of fun.

Hello Sonia!
Here is a quick rundown on all that has transpired since I got here:
I had to downsize my luggage or pay $45.00, so they gave me a bag and I threw shoes and toiletries into it and a heavier sweater. Flight delay in Philadelphia, over 1,000 people tied up at Security in London, but I made my connection with 10 minutes to spare and arrived safely in Edinburgh and got a taxi to school.

When I was unpacking, I discovered that my shampoo bottle's lid had gotten broken and leaked not only on everything in the zip top bag but also the polybag that the airline had given me! I found this out because it dripped on the bed where I had placed it so I could go through it! By this time I was a little cranky, especially because the room is up four flights of steps and down two sets of corridors, and I had to make two trips back and forth to the reception area to lug my stuff. The reception area is a 1/4 mile form the dorm that I am in. Also there is no interente access in the dorms because of the multitude of work that is going on all over campus.

After I get settled, I find my friend Carissa, who I had been corresponding with prior to the trip and we went to a local place calle=d The Crags for dinner. The Crags are actually part of the mountain landscape behind the University of Edinburgh and they run right onto Arthur's Seat, the peak point mountain that overlooks all of Edinburgh. I have not sclaed to the top yet, but I plan to do so one day soon.

On Monday, we had breakfast and then headed into the center of the city to check out the varietal festival set ups and took a bus tour before heading back for dinner. CArissa already has a multitude of health issues, but somehow still managed ot make it worse by snapping her big toe as she exited the bus! It has made getting around a bit of a strecth.

Tuesdaythrough Friday were a series of lectures, classes, and post class editorial groups plus evening poetry reading, tutors' reading /acting circle and so on. I also managed to gfo with my friend Andrea to the Museum of Childhood, which houses antique toys form the various eras and the Arcadia students visited Edinburgh CAstle on Thursday afternoon. I ran one of the editorial groups on Life Writng on Friday and yesterday, CArissa, Andrea and I took a cab in town to preserve CArissa's foot, where we caught a train out to New Berwick. We had a lovely fish n chip lunch and then got a cab to a castle called Tantullan. There was a wedding going on and it was absolutely the best thuing we did by getting out of the crowded city for the day to refresh ourselves! We took a bus back and caught the end of the Highland Game bands processing through the streets, before missing a train and waiting an hour for another. There were some drummers and their dog on our coach and they were great fun to talk to. The dog Suzie was a lovely little dog and she kept us company mostly ont ehtrip back, but the girl with them was a mess. She was so drunk, she literally fell over after stepping off the train, . As she lain strewn ont he ground, I made her get up on her feet since her mates were loaded with drums. She was a wretched thing, but I set her straight and they got her into a cab finally!

We made our way back to campus and hoped ot eat dinner but had to settle for the worst excuse for nachos the closed kitchen could manage for us instead. I felll asleep after writing a littloe morew for class and awoke relatively late this morning at 8am. There are 2,00 American high school students here this week and it is amazing the noise and slamming doors-argh! There are many pipers and so on and they actualy make less noise even when plahying than the American kids. I am embarrassed at their rudeness too, but they sure can sing.

Today, Andrea and I might catch up and head into town to go to the festovals and to see a play tonight. I would also like ot go to a comedy show if possible, but I am lacking funds. Carissa took a highland tour very early this morning and the rest of the students are kind of incognito. I imagine they made plans in clusters and took off early. Oh well, I have to go. I have a lot of homework to work on . Check out my facenbook page--the pictures are all there : ) All the Best! Felicia
PS-I hope all is well.

Wow! Your page is even more amazing than last I vivited! I am celebrating my 11 year anniversary today and leaving for Edinburgh University tonight. I got into a creative writing clas there. It is excelerated so I will only be there 3 weeks, but it is also festival season and I have reached out via email to some of the attendees and hope to make some new friends too.

I hope everything is improving on your end and as always, I miss talking to you. Iwill try my best to blog some news while away, but my past attempts haven't worked out so well. I have a very difficult time sending pictures to my page on theis site so I sometimes put them on facebook or snapfish. I need to find some timeot come back on this sitethouggh--I miss it so much.

Slan!!

Hello Sonia ,

Thanks a lot to your pretty cards ....

and i agree totally with my friend Alexndre ! " Peace comes from within"

simplify all matters of life ..
