I want to read and learn all I can, write thoughtfully and truthfully, live according to reason and ever more mature wisdom, and savor every wonderful little gift of life.
In college I went on a week-long study tour to London and Paris over a rainy March spring break. I had signed up and paid for the trip the previous semester, and the money was nonrefundable. Otherwise I would have backed out, because I was having a big health crisis that ended up being diagnosed as Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome—or, in other words, they couldn’t figure out why I felt so tired I could hardly walk. So I went on the trip in a wheelchair. The week was traumatic and I still have nightmares about it sometimes, but it remains the only time I’ve been out of the country (USA), and I also got to see and photograph some great sites.
I’ve been using the photos for a while now on my blog, so I thought I’d explain where they came from. They were dearly purchased!
Here are a few more. I hope I get to go back sometime, now that I’m in much better health.
