Jazzy and I rolled out of bed at around 7:30. I had a shower while she watched TV. As we walked to Denny’s for breakfast, I couldn’t help but think about how’s there’s no gap in our relationship despite the miles between us and the weeks that pass between visits. We just pick up where we left off, and it feels just like it always has between us.
To be clear, I don’t like the distance, but it’s our reality. At this age, I believe Jazzy should be with PJ in Vancouver. There’s a lot of really great things about their situation on the left coast. In pursuing her PhD, PJ has emerged as one of the top students in the country. Jazzy walks through a rainforest on her way to and from school. She’s made many friends and aside from math, she’s a good student as well.
After breakfast we headed to UBC where PJ is running a technology camp for kids as part of her research. I spent most of the day there helping out. PJ is designing an internet based game for kids and there’s a role for Dacian as we refine it. We first started to hash it out at a workshop we attended together at the Banff Television Festival in June.
I’ve decided that I will take a couple of days off before resuming production of The Urban Future teaser. It’s too hot right now. It seems all you have to do to trigger a heat wave, is invite me over. Mild Vancouver reached a record high the day I arrived. It was hot everyday in Bucharest and it was hot everyday I was in Regina. I hear Cuba gets pretty stifling this time of year… it guess I’m training for it.
