This morning on the way to the post office, a blackbird in flight crossed my path and the silliest thing popped into my head. I wondered if that meant I was in for good luck. You know like a black cat...bad luck. Oh well, it made sense to me.
Low and behold in the mailbox was a large ARTful envelope for me. It was the trip packet with the itinerary, travel guide, packing tips etc etc. Yep, I'm going. It is true. I did a little daydreaming about it here. Sometimes, you just have to make daydreams happen. I received my renewed passport yesterday and I am beside myself with excitement. I recommend taking action on daydreams if you can.
....and I have made a little destination/travel journal to take with me. I was so inspired by Deryn's journal. Well, it was the cover of her journal that mostly called to me because I knew exactly where a whole set of encyclopedias with the same exact covers were. My parents purchased a set in the 1940s when a door-to-door salesman encouraged them to be ready to educate their children. I have that set. Using the covers for my journal has already given me back so many memories of the past. Now I will be saving some future memories between the covers.
