Dusting off the Passport

I'm not going anywhere yet but I'm sure thinking about it.  It's a different kind of trip this time round.  Usually the story comes out of the trip, this time it will be the other way around.  Even though the backpack isn't out, the plans are in the works. The story, however, is also in the works.  But it needs grounding, reality, and that all important character, setting. 

Guadalajara here I come. Just don't ask me when.  It would be good to get there for Day of the Dead. Whether that will happen or not - I'll let you know.  There are other times that would be good too - timing you see, is still under review.  Meantime, there's fun in the planning.

And it's not just the passport I'm dusting off.  The other day I reconnected with a high school friend.  While catching up on what was happening in our lives, we agreed to meet for coffee and review the old yearbook.  Those memories will be a journey unto itself.  

Any trips scheduled in your life - memory lane or otherwise?

I am in Santa Rosa taking care of my father. My best and next trip will be home this weekend. I know I have to come back down again, this is my 6th or 7th trip since he got worse this year.

I have one trip coming up in October and you mentioned meeting a high school friend...well, my trip just happens to be to my High School reunion in Arizona. It should be fun...I've been to each and every one my class has had. Will be fun to see my old friends again.

Miriama - It's not easy coping with a loved one being ill. Take care. Hopefully your trips will be happy ones soon.

JackieW - I'm impressed! I haven't been to a high school reunion. Maybe I should - it would definitely be fun, although, not sure about viewing the yearbook after all these years.
