Well, this is quite amazing.  I had an incredible week in Galveston, which was capped off by a lovely dinner with the resident Osler Scholars, after which this lovely bust of Dr. William Osler was presented to me .  I have never in my life as a photographer felt so respected and acknowledged.  I spent the week talking about the suitcases in a variety of venues and was able to hear so many interesting comments on the collection.  It is difficult for me to say how important this week was to me, but it was such a positive, affirming experience that I am at a bit of a loss for words.  Huge thanks to Dr. Dwight Wolf and Rosemary Lindley for everything they have done to support the project.

Before coming home, Cris and I took the time to go out to Moody Gardens.  It was so cool to see these giant river otters.

Back home now and trying to decompress from an intense week.  A little stressed today as it seems the willardsuitcases.com site is having problems.  I have been on the phone most of the day trying to get it sorted.  The link above still is still functional but if you just type in the regular url it is broken.  Arrrrgh.  Hope to get it sorted soon.
