Long Time No Post





It's been a while since I posted. I have been extremely busy, even more so than usual. But my work for a conference got piled on top of other things. I presented a paper at the Internal Federation for Psychoanalytic Education Conference (IFPE). I am also chair of the research committee, so I attended the all day board meeting on Thursday before the conference. It was a good conference in many ways, and I enjoyed seeing many old friends and colleagues, getting to hear about the research of Mark Solms (who is showing via neuroscience that Freud's dream theory still has many legs left), and getting about to some good restaurants in Toronto. I took some pictures this morning. Toronto has a very modern look and feel, and we were sure in an interesting part of town, judging by the restaurants anyway and happenings. The hotel is connected to the Rogers Center, where many Toronto sports teams play. The restaurant inside the hotel overlooks the ball field. That picture didn't come out too well. The CN Tower, evident in the picture, is the tallest made man structure in the world, although it doesn't appear that way when you are standing close up to it.

Even Little Projects can be OK


And this was a little project. I had some small trees cut down and a lot of stumps ground down. I used some of the new space to make a little seated project in the backyard. Not much, but it makes things a tad more interesting.
