I have been known to write “this will just be a short note” and then go on to write a long letter. But this evening I will be true to my word if for no other reason than that I only have 2 days to go before I have to be ready to leave for home in my parish of St. Peter in Nkololo and there is still much to do.
I will go to Janesville, Wisconsin, sometime Wednesday afternoon or more likely evening. Usually last minute things to do delay my departure. When my mother was here, it was difficult to say goodbye to her, and now that she isn’t here, it is difficult to say goodbye to the house and be sure that I have closed it up properly.
