If we would only give, just once, the same amount of reflection
to what we want to get out of life that we give to
the question of what to do with a two weeks’ vacation,
we would be startled at our false standards and
the aimless procession of our busy days.

Ah.  A road trip. I have a feeling that an eight year old boy and a grandmother might be the best possible traveling companions. I’m looking forward to a week of driving through Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina. We’re off to Grandpa’s then to Uncle Jamie and Aunt Bev’s. Hope to visit on the beach as well.
