Memories and desires

Memory is the greatest traveler.

~  Edward Counsel

The warm days of spring are making me think of my recent trip to Savannah, Georgia, 
with a desire to return.   I long for carefree days where the only schedule to be followed is that dictated by my empty stomach and my need for sleep.  
It is spring break for many schools in my area and the university where my honey works.  
With deadlines looming and uncertainties pressing down upon us, we opted not to travel this week.
I guess I am feeling a little bit wistful for the sweetness of our last trip, wishing we had decided to spend a little time away.   
Perhaps a little time spent outside, deep in the woods; watching movies filmed in exotic locations;
or indulging memories of previous travels will suffice to cure these
I-should-have-gotten-out-of-town blues.

Wishing you adventure, discovery, and presence of mind,
wherever you may roam, whether near or far.
Until next time...

P.S.  I wrote this post and then received word from my mother that my dad, who has a variety of cancers, is not doing well, and my presence is needed.  So, now I am headed to Nashville and am thinking of the old adage about being careful what you wish for.


  1. Dear Anne,
    I loved your Savannah post when you went there. The architecture is beautiful and I can see why you would like another visit least you have photographs and memories of it. I'm sure that you will get back there soon.
    Thanks so much for your lovely comment yesterday.
    Oh and I love the way your blog looks too.
    Enjoy the rest of the week Anne even though you are not in Savannah !! XXXX

  2. Anne, I do hope your father is OK. Awful to get a call like that.


  3. I'm glad you got to spend time with your father. It is a strange feeling to have a heavy heart and yet be surrounded by the beauty of spring -- the red bud and dogwood trees are especially gorgeous this year. My thoughts are with you, Anne.


Your thoughts are always greatly appreciated. Thank you for visiting!
