Writing, and writerly tangents

By the time this is posted for me, I should be just coming out the other side of some wicked jet lag. Southeast Asia, with stops in Thailand and Cambodia. And ya, I’m excited.

Vacation has been non-existent for most of my adult life mostly because I’ve spent a lot of it far away from family. Vacation meant going back to Saskatchewan. Vacation meant Christmas, weddings, family issues. It never meant vacation. Couple that with the 2-3 measly weeks of holidays bestowed by employers and it’s easy to see why I forgot the concept of getting away from it all.

I’m looking forward to being bitten by the travel bug all over again, although I hope it doesn’t give me malaria…

I’ll be back with pictures from and writing about the far side of the world.

You sneak! Did we know you were going to Asia? Probably, I think you did a tally a while back. Guess Hawaii's not exotic enough for you... Looking forward to your pics!

I'm excited for you. Love to hear your impressions.

I haven't really had a vacation as an adult. I never save enough money. I think I'd like one.

My exotic vacations were in my younger days, when my father invited us to visit when he worked in far-off places.

He packed us off to Mallorca when I was sixteen to attend a year of high school, and soon afterward I visited him in Algeria, with stopovers in France and Switzerland.

Now, vacation is catching up on neglected housework.
