Teri asked, “How are we going to do this? Are we all going to drive, or should we coordinate with each other and save some gas?”
“Teri, we are all going to the same place. I think it only makes sense we ride together. We can meet in a central location to us all and then go from there. Who has the biggest vehicle?”
“Not me,” said Ashton. “I have a little Honda.”
Gloria stood up in the back of the room and said, “I have a van that seats 8 total.”
“Then you win Gloria, Minnesota here we come!”

Sandra was so excited, today was the day. Today was the day her vacation started. She was going to travel abroad for a full month. A part of her was terrified of the trip alone, but the excitement to see far away lands won out as the stronger emotion. She could hardly contain her excitement as she closed her suitcase and heard the cabbie honk his horn.
At the airport she began to worry about who she would be stuck next to on the overseas trip. “I hope it is not a noisy kid,” she thought to herself. Getting on the plane she was a bit apprehensive but when she got to her seat there was no one in the aisle seat yet.
She stored her carry-on overhead and took her window seat. Just then she sensed someone behind her. Turning in her seat she saw a very handsome man in front of her. “Maybe his will be a great flight after all,” she thought as she smiled at the man.

I trace the route
On the worn out map
You sent to me years ago.
The plan was to travel
And see you again
But life had other ideas.
My health declined
And you moved on
We somehow drifted apart.
But I still trace that line
And remember a dream
As a tear falls on your town.
I want to travel to other lands
I want to see different points of view
If only a passport could transport me
But my life keeps me grounded
Here at home unable to explore
Or see new terrains
So instead I take a trip
Traveling everywhere I can
Beyond the confines of my mind…
