The Night Before the Trip

Sitting on my son’s bed trying to figure out how to write a blog. I’m leaving on a 3 month journey to Southeast Asia in a couple of days. The guide books are strewn on the table

I’m writing highlights not to miss in my journal, testing out which archival ink pen I want to bring, perseverating on which toiletries (a.k.a. creature comforts) I need to leave home . My suitcase is in varying stages of indecision and I’m coming down with a cold. Other than that, I’m aware I’m readying to embark on the longest travel I’ve done in 50 years. Yikes! I’d say the anxiety and excitement are about equal at this moment. Need to stop and make a hot toddy remedy.

  4. One last thing – you should put a date at the start of your narrative – the blog site doesn’t seem to provide a date stamp.
