Modest Travel

It is quite early, as I lay in the dark I am thinking about how I would love my day to materialize. From the positivity of energy from me and around me, to a great adventure, to meeting more people and building growth in relationships.

Last night I had the privilege to attend an evening event with little one. The destination was the awards event but the journey was the true gift. Along the way, I met another student in the same programming as her, and an amazing professor who feels like another one of the kindered souls I have been meeting.

It was an evening to remember, from seeing how they all flourish from this program, the conversations, the hype of it, the respect. It was like watching the conductor to a symphony bring those in to the same melody.

Each with their own flare and descriptive style, each with the goal in mind, each with ethicalness on the ride. I loved being part of it.

Ideas were tossed around, pasta’s were eaten and Merlot was consumed. I can see the vision of her destiny of my little one even more.

Todays journey was one we didn’t have any preconceived notions about and it turned out to be one of the most relaxing days full of amazing scenery.

We enjoyed our time and conversation together, sharing bowls of corn chowder soup while we sat outside in the overcast sky, watching the sailboats drifting by.

It was magnificent! From there we ventured with the hundreds of others looking for the history on Alcatraz.

The audio tour was so wonderful it was like a modern day podcast that you were experiencing. One of the best parts was the way you had to walk from room to room and feel like you were part of the Clue movie; I pretended I was Tim Curry.

Having Jolene Babyak there signing her books is an excellent gift for Mr. Jones. I am excited to take it home to him.

During my time away, Mr. Jones has been sending me the daily photos and I cannot believe how much the pup has grown. I cannot wait to see her tomorrow night, and get some puppy hugs and kisses. I hope she is not mad at me for going away.

I am always sad when our adventures come to an end but I also have such an appreciation of the ability to take these trips together. I will keep my umbrella and sunblock, in my suitcase prepped for the next trip; wherever that may be; one never knows.

P.S I love those flowers but have no idea what they are? Reminds me of a delphinium and lilac combined. Any idea let me know; wonder if it grows in zone 3?

We love a reply, thank you!!
