I always end up finding some reason to go through all of my mementos in my closet every spring. I hate to call this action “spring cleaning”, but I am afraid that it is commonly referred to. Regardless, as I am going through the collected items in my overstuffed travel envelopes, I am left wondering: “What country will I spend my next New Year’s?” 2007-2008 was spent in Rome. 2008-2009 was in Colorado (okay, may not be a country, but a different altitude). 2009-2010 was spend in Japan.
I found notes that I wrote about those places. I found notes that I wrote about the people I met there. Wow, I even found notes I wrote in high school! I hope they all are looking forward to the spring as much as I am.
I just got done buying a car. A great car at that. A great car and at a hard-driven bottom price. What am I doing thinking about running away? Oh, that’s right, I bought a car to run away…
With great wonder at the past and imagination of the future,
