I fully support this and the efforts by St. B's to support her also are gratifying. But it makes for a long lonely weekend. On the other hand, it's less than what she suffers every time business takes me elsewhere -- a situation that occurs often and looks like it will become much more prevalent this year.
But... she is coming with me to Paris in 3 weeks time for another of my committees' meeting. After my meetings are done we will have two days to tour together. Parisian French is her other native language; it will be a good time and will make up for this separation!
I wonder if there are any Anglican churches in Paris.
