Enjoyed a night out with the T/E.M. staff Friday - with rock climbing, laser tag, and a cart race. All that kept "racing" through my mind was LeMans, LeMans, LeMans... It was a great B-day for Dawn , but too bad Mike got the Yugo! I am looking forward to exploring new lands and a different culture in less than 2 weeks! Is it crazy to "practice pack" this early? Will I miss pop tarts, wrestling with our cat, paying for gas, setting our alarm clock, the English language, and strolling through libraries; picking up 4-5 new books along the way? Or will I be like a new sponge - my only job to absorb and work through everything that is thrown at us over the next 110 days? I'm betting on cleaning up.
When I started this blog in May 2007, it was for the sole purpose of staying in touch with friends and family while we traveled to Europe for three months. I am still staying in touch. "Traveller's Joy" clematis vitalba: Wildflower found throughout southwest Europe/Africa. Used for medicinal purposes and found "climbing and covering" the roadsides of Europe.
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
