:: Taking a few days off from posting didn’t help all that much. I’m still knee deep in e-mail (aka electronic messages), although I did get the number from 65 to somewhere under 40.

Today I perform in a Mother’s Day concert with Amelia (click the pic on the right). The concert is at 2:00 pm, at St Luke’s Anglican Church, 8424 95th Avenue. $10 at the door if you’re looking for something to do with Mom, or otherwise. A few days later, Amelia is off to Vienna for a few weeks, to visit her brother and his family, and take a break from Edmonton life.

It was quite nice yesterday, warm enough to sit outside for coffee with a good friend I hadn’t seen for at least 18 months. There is a dusting of snow on the ground this morning, and the temperature is -2C. Enough with the sub-zero weather, already – it’s MAY, dammit!

    I’m pretty fed up with the weather, too – I have an entire dining room of too-tall bedding plants whining to get outside, and all my brother’s Vancouver irises trying to adjust to sun, snow, sun, rain, snow… Let’s get on with spring so we can have our two weeks of summer!

    A layer of ice in the birdbath this morning. Wondered why the birds were so quiet!

    As for limits on time and patience, the internet age can generate far more communication of much greater mass than anyone can handle. At some point, you have to stop and say, “That’s enough!” I can’t answer every e-mail message; neither can you. You can acknowledge the more minor messages, so that the senders at least know they are being heard. You shouldn’t try to provide long answers to everything.

    Yeah, yeah, I know we’ve had this discussion before. Call it a day and leave some things behind you.

    Actually, Keith, you make a lot of sense. I can’t answer everything, and it is an endless stream of messages making their way into my, and everyone’s inbox. And no matter that we’ve had this discussion before, it’s a discussion that We, the Royal We, need to have repeatedly until a resolution is found.

    There was a good article on e-info overload in a recent issue of Time Out New York. The issue in question should be available on their archive this week, and I’ll link to the article at that time. The comment on e-mail is appropriate and effective, and shares the same sensibilities as you do.

    Maybe this is not the time to tell you about our picture-perfect-summer-weather weekend just past? The barbeque and drumming session in the park? etc???

    Hey, D, anytime is ok with me. 🙂 R

    I guess you don’t want to hear about the warm sunny days at Wreck Beach this past weekend. By the way, did you know that UBC wants to build two twenty story towers, one of them about 300 feet from the edge of the cliff for student dorms? It would be clearly visible from the main beach. We did a protest on Mother’s day, but I don’t think it will do much good at stopping it.
