wk 243 temerity


Hindsight is 20/20 Vision


I watch Emily in Paris with a middle-aged woman’s wistfulness,

having never dared to go outside the comfort of my known box


To have the temerity to take a job in a country

where you don’t speak the language or know the culture

What an experience!


Naturally, we see things differently over time


Today, I say I wish I could have

Then, it never would have crossed my mind


Closest I’ve gotten to Paris is through Epcot Center!

Every December, it was the same thing.  During her Christmas shopping, Dana would find herself at the calendar kiosk in the mall, looking for a calendar of Burgundy, France, depicting beautiful images of the area she so longed to visit.  It had become a ritual.  This was, after all, the fifth year that she had such a calendar hanging in her kitchen where she could look at the images daily.

When asked about it, she explained that this was a vision board of sorts. Once she finally made it to Burgundy, a new destination would be chosen.

Next up, Tuscany!
