We're away on our travels next week so I'm a bit bursty with excitement. What I love about our holidays is their capacity to enrich time across all dimensions. There's the planning beforehand, creating magical memories whilst away and then withdrawing them at a future date for a bit of quality reminiscing.
I've been thinking about last year's Trans-Atlantic trip a lot lately. In particular musing on those geyser eruptions has an extra-special capacity to warm the coolest cockles of my heart. One day in retirement I may well be flipping burgers for a few months in Yellowstone just to get a proper thermal fix. So, in thirty years time, if you see a old granny at the Old Faithful Geyser Basin excitedly wielding a spatula as Beehive is about to erupt it'll probably be me!
This video that I've just discovered takes me back to another time during our trip where we visited Chihuly Gardens and Glass in Seattle. Man-made rather than natural wonders but nonetheless amazing. I am completely bowled over by these super skillful craftsmen. Though tempted to create my own glassy forms I think I'll pass. Clumsy lady, hot molten glass; What could possibly go wrong?
