Travel has a way of stretching the mind.
The stretch comes not from travel’s immediate rewards,
the inevitable myriad of new sights, smells and sounds,
but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently
what we have believed to be the right and only way.
I’ve been "gone" a lot lately — Arizona, Utah and Nevada and I’m headed to Ohio early Sunday. I’ve met new people, reunited with old friends and worked and played with people I love. I’m very much looking forward to staying home in October and then … traveling to Australia and New Zealand!!!!
I haven’t talked much about this trip, but I’m so excited (Geof is joining me for the New Zealand portion, and Paula and Kayce are coming too.) This is all a part of the Stacy and Friends Event organized and sponsored by David Roberts and KiwiScraps. Several of my friends and colleagues have been hosted by Kiwi before and have raved about EVERYTHING. I’ll be teaching with the fabulous Wendy Smedley, Renee Pearson and Nic Howard (simply cannot wait to meet Nic) Anyway, I realize that Australia is a vast continent and that New Zealand is an entirely different country, but … I really, really want to meet you if you live anywhere remotely close and can swing the trip (I’ve never been down under and don’t imagine it’s something I’ll get to do again very soon)
If you’re already coming, post and let me know!
