Fandango says: At 6:00 am Pacific time each day this month, I will be posting a new theme. Today’s theme is “trip.” You can post about a business trip, a vacation, a journey of self discovery, a field trip, a drug-induced trip, a trip down memory lane. That’s up to you. It can be a story, a poem, a photo, a drawing, some music, whatever.
Right now, taking a trip is out of the question. But with my scrapbooks, and my gratitude I can travel down memory lane.
