Day 2055: I’m Here

I’m Here in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival and so are many other people, including actors, improv artists, musicians, and stand-up comedians, like the guy who inspired today’s blog title.

I don’t know Glenn Doncaster, even though he is “… what the Edinburgh Fringe is all about.” No matter what else Glenn does in his life, he’s helped me find my blog post title for today by putting “I’m Here” on the back of his Fringe flyer.

I’m here and so are others.

That’s my son Aaron and his friend Camilla meeting me at the Edinburgh Airport yesterday. Camilla has been here in my blog before. She told me yesterday that after she found out about my blog from Aaron, she decided to pick a blog post to read and — much to her amazement — found a photo of herself, as the beggar woman in a 2015 production of Sweeney Todd at the Fringe.

I’m here to tell you that synchronicity and coincidences like that help make life even more beautiful and rich.

I’m here to try to find that old blog post. I was not successful. I’m here to tell you it’s okay not to succeed sometimes.

(I’m also here to tell you, eleven days after I published this post and am back home in Boston, that I was able to search for the post with Camilla’s photo and link to it, both in the paragraph above and also here.)

I’m here to share other recent photos with all my readers who are here, now, too.

I’m here with my son and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m here to thank all who helped me create this post and — of course! — all my readers, who are here with me now.

    Enjoy your stay in Edinburgh! 😊😊

  2. What a marvelous journey you’re on. I’m here to tell you that the Fringe Festival looks fantastic. I went to Just for Laughs in Montreal… 23 years ago – and it was one of the funniest weeks of my life. Enjoy!!!

  3. You’re in Edinburgh, but some of your pictures remind me that there’s a saying in Belgium: Your morning may be bad, your afternoon may be worse.
    That’s all there is. Belgium is too small a country to hold anything longer.

  4. I am so glad that you are there, and happy.

  5. Edinburgh! My you do get around. Have a safe and happy trip.

  6. Have a wonderful weekend Ann with your son!!!

  7. What a wit is Aaron

  8. I’m here one day late, Ann, but I’m optimistic that this is quite OK.
