Dear Sam,

Your Dad and I had a conversation about this author once.

Seems we both read this Book in Grade 8 and then read lots of his other books.

Maybe you would like to keep this book in your new room in Kelowna and save it for your Grade 8 year.

When I look at how fast you and Susan and Martha make time fly for us grownups, I know you'll be able to read this book in no time at all.

Don't forget your old Toronto family, Sweetie. When we write letters, we will be watching the mail every day for an answer.

Love Always,


Sunshine through slanting blinds, cool air through the sliding balcony door. Gorgeous gold light. The dusty blue sky that says fall. Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 26 in E flat major, opus 81a, the slow glide of spaced-out notes, the andante's hurrying runs that evoke the MGM Studio Orchestra in blinking neon caps.
