My passport is ready and I can be packed in minutes.

A View From My (Borrowed) Window

Merano Italy, October 2008
Every morning and evening, I would fling open the drapes

And step out onto the deck and just stare.

I would wonder

if the people who lived here,

the people who had this view all the time,

ever tired of it?

I would wonder if

in their daily hustle and bustle,

they forgot to look around

in awe

and appreciation

and contentment.

I certainly know not a day went by where I didn't stop, breath and tell myself how lucky I was to have a view like that!

As I read through your blog posts, all the way up to your post-Thanksgiving one, I could not help but think that you are way too sweet for that bunch of people who expects you to provide that huge dinner, year after year! If I were you, I would start planning right now to have next year's Thanksgiving with your parents up in Maine, for goodness' sake!

Good luck und hugs!
