Tomorrow is the day Ken and I travel to Zurich to spend three weeks with our daughter Stacie and her husband Hampi. Needless to say, I'm really excited, not just to spend time with two of my favorite people, but also because I've been anticipating what kind of adventures we'll encounter and what new things we'll be exposed to.

I really wish people could travel to other countries more often. I always learn so much from the experience and it gives me new ways of looking at the world by learning about different customs and cultures. Not surprisingly, the one thing that I've discovered is that human beings seem to have certain things in common. Everyone wants to love and be loved...as simple as that.

I'll let you know how it goes...

  2. Linda. It may have something to do with the time we knew each other. For instance, some people have postulated that 1968 was a very significant year cosmologically, culturally, politically. Peace and love were strong undercurrents, even though Vietnam raged. And now we find ourselves here, due to technology. There really is a profound mystery to it all, and yet as you say, the simple awareness that we want to love and be loved...group hug.


Your visit makes my heart smile. Thank you.
