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:

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.
