Count-down:  28 days until departure for Alaskan Adventure

Most of my childhood was spent in imagination.  My head was filled with faraway places, King Arthur stories, Disney Princesses, and Star Wars.  How could I keep my thoughts to Earth in the present?  I wanted to be a heroine going on a quest, finding magical worlds, hidden truths, and talking animals.  To be saved by my Prince or me saving him.

As an adult, I’ve had to spend a little more time in Earth-present doing those everyday things that have to get done, though I always jump at a chance to leave it all behind and go explore new lands.  Our trips are always wonderful and exciting but they are mere vacations.  

This trip to Alaska is a Quest.  We will discover frozen, magical lands with powerful beasts.  At times it will be difficult and may be dangerous.  Luckily, my Prince is traveling with me. Whatever we encounter we will journey to the end and be changed because of it.  I’m not sure what we will find along the way, though I have a feeling we will uncover hidden truths within ourselves.  

As for the talking animals... anything is possible on a Quest.

  2. Excellent post! This sounds so exciting!

  3. I believe that our make-believe imaginings end up having a connection to what we will do as adults. As a child, I dreamed about castles and brave women, handsome adventurers. As adults, we lived in Ireland, explored castles (some abandoned) with our children. My handsome dark haired husband took us there.
    Have a marvelous time in Alaska.

  4. Having an open mind and an adventurous spirit is half the challenge. Sounds like you already have both. :)
