In Vancouver, last day


In less than 24 hours, I will be home.

Meanwhile ….

eating a potato scone in my hotel room

after a run in the rain out past Kitsilano beach

& prepping for my last event here at the Vancouver Writers Fest, a panel at 5PM


thinking that the return to reality is going to be steep, rocky & uncompromising

knowing too that this shall pass

wondering what I’ll keep from what I’ve found on this adventure


wondering what I’ve found


In Vancouver, afloat
Home, and away


  1. Sandra Vincent

    Nice. Looking forward to reading your book.

    • Carrie Snyder

      Thank you, Sandra. I hope you enjoy it.

  2. Shirley Levene

    We were right there in May. The weather was GORGEOUS and all the Rhododendrons were in full bloom.
    Just wanted to tell you that I’m enjoying reading Girl Runner. Halfway thru. Thrilled to report that I will be attending Appetite for Reading in January. See you there.

    • Carrie Snyder

      I’m looking forward to that event in January, Shirley! Glad you’re enjoying Girl Runner.

    When I was in the running clinic, that’s the route we’d take–starting just east of Granville Island and heading west. I have a fondness for it.

    Will you write about the panels at all? Understandable if not, but I’d love to hear more about them all.

    Hope your transition back to home life is smooth and gentle.

    • Carrie Snyder

      I probably won’t write about the panels, but if you have questions, send me an email and I’ll do my best to answer them. The transition home proved not hard at all. It’s getting myself unstuck from home so soon after arriving that’s been hard! On the road again …
