In August, 2012, I finally had the opportunity to visit Stonehenge. I’ve always wanted to physically be there, to experience the wonder of these ancient stones. The sky cooperated, getting cloudier and moodier. Sadly, it was part of a bus tour so my time there was limited. I promise to return, with a picnic lunch and time to spare. I’ve experienced several things on my wishlist: parenthood, living in the area where I now live, seeing a few places other than my native New York City. It’s such a big world, though, and I have always wanted to experience more of it. There is so much to see and learn and eat. Our national history and my family’s history are interconnected with that of so many other places. A bucket list seems like a great idea until you start throwing more and more ideas into the bucket. The bucket is never satisfied. It is always hungry. (This post was inspired by this Daily Prompt: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/dust-wind/ Why not visit there and see how other bloggers were inspired?)
December 2007, San Jose, Costa Rica: This is a statue of a street sweeper. I was enchanted by a culture that would so honor the people who keep their capitol city clean. In the next few days, I would come to further appreciate the locals’ friendliness and intelligence. (The security guard at the museum became my personal docent. The dental student on a fishing trip knew quite lot about the American healthcare system. Everybody spoke at least some English.) I will go back.
