TO – Toronto. I am on my way. Fittingly enough, there is a rainbow beyond the runway, a multi-hued ribbon of colour in the pinkish-grey highveld sky. The Swiss ‘plane is parked just below the window of the Business Lounge; in the morning we will come in over the Swiss Alps to land in Zurich. And then onwards to Toronto.

The hardest part is leaving my children, my mother, my family, and there is much that I may want to say, as the days and weeks and months pass by – but not today. Not now.

Now is about looking forward. The next step, the next adventure. And it is about Rob, and Canada.
