And thanks to this random guy who happened to be posing when I took the picture.
Haven’t you ever wondered about other people’s vacation pictures you are in? I wonder if I look better in their pictures than I do in my own?
I’d post a picture of my family, or the mountains, or the lake, but, thanks to our continuing camera fail, the only other pictures we have are either on my parents’ camera or my husband’s phone.
Back at work again. So soon!
Vacation can never last long enough.
At least this time we didn’t
ride “It’s a Small World” again.
Or I’d be hearing that song
in my head again, and again,
and again, and again, and again.
Enjoy the earworm!
This post is part of Six Word Fridays. Today’s word is again.
I’ve been thinking again lately about how certain period in my life seem more vivid, or seem as if they lasted longer than they did. For instance, the four years I spent in college in New Hampshire seems like a lifetime — so full of memories, big decisions and experiences.
We are in upstate New York this weekend, finally taking a vacation. After a couple of unseasonably warm days, the weather has changed to a crisp fell day. The cool breezes and brilliant colors bring back days in college, walking to work, and taking in the beauty of the mountains, the trees and the crisp air. My memories of that time are so strong. The feelings of nostalgia brought by today’s weather hurts. I think in those moments twenty years ago, I felt so completelly alive, so in tune with the moment. It’s hard to re-capture that feeling, but it’s sorely missing in my life today.
Which begs the question – how can I live each day in its fullness?
By the time this posts, we will be on the way to Belize! We’ll be working at Holy Cross Anglican School. Check back after the 19th for some pictures and the story of our trip.
It’s been hard to focus on even my first, simple resolutions as we’ve spent the last couple of days preparing for our upcoming trip to Belize. That, combined with an unexpected funeral yesterday, and I’m there hasn’t been time to think of much else. Just now, I’m getting ready to go pick up my anti-malaria meds and do a little swimsuit shoppng. Hopefully there will still be time for a run, at least, when I come back.
