Didn’t expect all the rain today.
Get me a boat.
Build me an ark.
Take me away to a warm island.
I want to order little pink drinks with umbrellas.
And spend my days on a lounge chair near the ocean, reading.
Yes, I have the Biography of Tom Petty, thanks to the lovely Liz.
On second thought, I probably won’t go to an Island to read this book.
I will curl up in bed, on a chilly day in Pennsylvania, in April, sipping a glass of Malbec, with my new book.
Does anyone know where I can get some little paper umbrellas? for my wine?
Let me tell you a little secret:
You don’t have to go anywhere to have a fabulous vacation.
The mind can carry you anywhere you choose.
And with a book, you travel the world, without leaving your home.
I want to savor every word of this book.
I want to know how a passion can drive a life.
How an obsession can overcome all obstacles.
And how an ordinary person can achieve his/her wildest dreams.
When I have finished the book, and a few bottles of the bubbly,
I will let you know.
