All Quiet on the Homefront

After a rocky few days, all is quiet on the homefront … at least for now. Once again, we swooped in, did little to change an uncontrollable situation and will swoop out again to head back to Nine of Cups in Durban. Let's face it … we're swoopers.

Rather than bore you with the details, suffice it to say, things worked out in the best possible way and we're hoping they'll remain positive for at least the near future. We don't even dare to venture thinking about long term … too many variables.

It's amazing just how wonderful it feels to be all together. David and his three sibs haven't all been together for nearly 15 years. It was a short, but fine reunion. After this unexpected, but reassuring family visit, we're ready to head back from Vegas to LAX and board that return Emirates flight via Dubai to Durban. Africa's “wild coast” awaits us and hopefully a reasonable weather window.
