Thanks for joining me!
What creates a journey? The place? The people? The sites? Sounds? Smells? Feelings? I don’t really know because I’m not sure I’ve ever experienced a real journey. I’ve been on trips, vacations if you like, from the world that surrounds me, like it surrounds us all – the world of the familiar and comfortable. Maybe a journey is stepping out of that world and into another – for long enough to make the new place your new world.
I’ve often longed for the chance to take such a journey; and, that opportunity presented itself when my daughter Jo signed with a modeling agency in Milan, Italy. More about that later.
Right now, I’m sitting at home in Alabama, a place I’ve called home my entire adult life. Starting in a week, Jo and I will be living in a small apartment in Milan for the next few months. Birmingham, Alabama to Milan, Italy. I can’t quite wrap my head around this whole thing – but I’ve never been more excited.
New places, people, sites, smells and feelings. I want to remember and share it, so I’ll write about it and post pictures here.
