Veal panino at local Italian deli restaurant Tommaso’s, casual with tablecloths, a short walk from the house. A pre-birthday lunch for DY because they don’t serve panino at dinner.  Maybe we’ll try the tavola calda next time, so the fork and knife will be less messy. (Toronto, Thursday) 20101202 1400

View from our second story bedroom window, a city forester pruning the tree in front of our house, at below zero temperature. In Toronto, that’s not “our tree”, that’s the city’s linden tree covered under urban foliage. Municipal taxes at work. 20101207 0945

Eric St. Laurent Trio at the Rex Hotel. @ericstlaurent and I talked during the break about his career as a self-contracting musician in the Future Shock age. It’s such a luxury for me to be able to catch great musicians on Queen Street West. (Toronto, Saturday) 20101211 2000

Kids play area at Salt Lake City Airport two days before Christmas, Vacant, with two non-parents sipping coffee. Does this suggest that early morning flights are preferred to avoid kids needing to burn off energy? (Salt Lake City, Utah) 20101223 0730t

Passengers lined up on the tarmac at DEN, waiting to board regional jets. Sunny day, but cold enough to see my breath. Walking and taking train from terminal B to A, with Lufthansa staff checking into Air Canada flights, lesser partners in Star Alliance with elite lounges in other terminal (Denver, Colorado, Thursday) 20101223 1130
