All You Can Do Is Ask


Sometimes, I ask for things....like I did here. And they happen.


It totally blows my mind. Not only that these things happen, but that people like you actually care enough to send up a little prayer or a positive thought floats from your head into the universe. For me.

What I really wish is that my Love could go. That she would WANT to go. And experience the type of travel that is so different than going to Vegas. I call it Travel Without Certainty. In Vegas, it's safe. It's AMERICA. You can always go around the corner for a burger if you're hungry. You can read the signs. Life around you looks familiar.

But I crave the unfamiliar. I desire the unusual. I want to see things that look completely different from my every day life. I need an explosion occasionally.

I want to savor every moment of the next ten weeks, but I'm so excited that I can barely contain myself. As Phrankie says, "I'm ready to stir the pot!"

I'm really happy for you. You're right, the uncertainty is the best part.

Wow, good for you.
I would love to be on that thing made of sticks glued to a shear rock wall hundreds of feet about nothing.
NOT, NOT, NOT, NOT, NOT EVER.
I admire your adventuresomeness.
I'll pretty much stick to civilization. Thanks.

If you don't take your uncle up on his offer to take you to China with him, you are nutz! Do you hear me girl? NUTZ!

Those picture of the Yellow Mountains in your link, are absolutely stunning! I enlarged the photo of the walkway along the side of the cliff, and I still can't figure out what is supporting it. Obviously some kind of hidden cantilever.

At any rate, you just have to go! I am so jealous, of you!

Oh sure give your love a reason to be nervous... Ditch the pic of the sweet sweet Asian and replace with one of your sweet sweet love.
