Itchy feet

It’s been a little quiet here in blogland for a while – a  busy fall in Maine with lots of time spent reading about and discussing current events and the political landscape at the moment. These topics could certainly fill a lot of blog entries, but instead I want to share that I’m sitting at a restaurant at the Logan Airport in Boston about to launch on my next adventure, and I just wanted to share some research I found a while back…some of us are literally genetically disposed to, like the bear who went over the mountain, have to “see what we can see.” Here’s the link:

At least I don’t feel like I’m quite so much from Mars.

The itinerary this trip is Lithuania (mostly Vilnius but also the seaside town of Klaipedia, formerly Memel, to do some research on the Uncle Bob project), and then a decadent week visiting friends and Christmas markets in Berlin, my latest spiritual home. In between, I may muse on the challenges of limited packing for budget airlines, what to do in the Keflavik Airport between 4:00 and 6:00 am in the morning, the nature of the Lithuanian tongue (did you know it is the closest to Sanskrit of all the Indo-European languages?), and goodness knows what else. Stay tuned.
