A Zoo trip ,Botanical Gardens, a trip to the Aquarium afterwards dinner with friends and family. Do this while learning more about your area of the world and the people who are most important to you. It is always interesting to me when I say something from a long gone era that was taught to me by my grandparents and a little one looks confused.
A mini vacation in areas close to home gives you access to friends and family who hold a wealth of unwritten information and so much more. Vacations to far away places are always great, but sharing a sandwich and a soda with large numbers of family and friends is such a recharge to our emotional batteries. As always, YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION.

I watch the weather and I think of the times I have visited New Orleans.I find myself thinking fondly of the city. Their is no where in the world quite like it. I remember the first time I saw Canal St. I thought how wide it was. I also remember my mouth dropping wide open when I saw a person of little attire swinging through a window in the Bourbon St.area. I think of the Candy factory and the singing . The River Boat rides,Sugar Plantations, and of course Ponchartrain. When I was told you could not see land from the middle of the bridge I thought they were kidding ,but it was true because I tried my best ,and the water is the same color as the Carribean. I would also go to New Orleans to eat. Not being a great cook ,I looked forward to the culinary creativity of New Orleans.I have also found myself going to New Orleans to just do nothing,perhaps due to the mood of THE BIG EASY.

Viewing the world from the comfort of my arm chair with a cup of hot chocolate and the television remote I think of the snowstorm in Dakota . Quite common I suppose one would say , but when I think of covered wagons , people on horseback ,walking in that kind of weather ,without the benefit of cell phone ,radio , heater , cars , and a helicopter rescue team if need be . I think of the strength and courage it must have taken to travel this land. The least I can do is go look at it,gas prices and all. Dream, and keep in mind WE LIVE THEIR DREAM...

Traveling has always been a part of learning. Men have traveled to find a better way of life to find food and to visit friends. In doing so the world has become a smaller place. We travel and we learn with hands on experience, and in the process we grow.
