Some days are diamonds, some days are stone…  John Denver
I actually got a lot accomplished today!  I even cut and laminated all my awards after taking them out of their frames here so they will make the trip to Colombia eventually.
Yesterday I again heard that fellow photographer Bill Riordan had passed away recently but I certainly heard nothing on social media that I can recall.  Bill was known for taking the photos for the Cuenca Symphony.  RIP.
I heard good news from friends Linda and Lee that they have a pending deal on their condo so they may be back here in late May for that final goodbye to Cuenca.  Who knows..??  I may still be here and will get the opportunity to enjoy their company again.
I went downtown and ran into a couple of teachers from a local English school.  They are Ecuadorian and worried about their pronunciation and diction, so they asked if we could do a reciprocal English-Spanish language exchange.  That really shocked me because they don’t even know me but seemed so keen on the idea.  In a weak moment I said yes, probably because of the boredom and, just maybe, if I get busy again, that will cause the house to sell and make me break some commitments..???  Sad idea huh?  Maybe just getting stupid in my old age.
I am getting lazy too, using the little Lumix lately...
I had called Gustavo and he was going over to the Herederos ride tonight and he said yes so I went as well.  However they were only having a meeting about changing the format of the Herederos to a friendly meet-up of people who want to ride, no more structure...  They will keep the Facebook page and the WhatsApp notices (which I don't follow anyway) so I can't see that much is going to change.  It either has to be interesting, with a fun ride or people stop showing up...
I hope you enjoy the pictures.  That was the day’s excitement.
