"Our most ancient metaphor says life is a journey. Memoir is travel writing, then, notes taken along the way, telling how things looked and what thoughts occurred. . . .This is the traveler who goes on foot, living the journey, taking on mountains, enduring deserts, marveling at the lush green places...as a pilgrim, seeking, wondering." -Patricia Hampl

On a train from Seattle to Vancouver, B.C., Heath and I made our "Top Ten Places to Travel" lists: among our top three, both of us had listed Argentina. Friends Kate and Matt, who'd recently told us of their round-the-world trip together, relayed the beauty and mystique of this "South American Paris," and it took little convincing to book a ticket. Both Heath and I have cousins who live in the capital, and we are hoping very much to connect with them. This trip marks our first trip abroad (aside from B.C., which was too close to the States to count), and estamos practicando el espanol to ease the culture shock. Stay tuned for those February blogs!

After months of rehearsals and preparations, studying and memorization, our cast of 45 performed Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's Dream" to an audience who, in return, gave the cast a standing ovation! Kudos to a sensational cast who worked hard and performed a most difficult show with passion, humor, and talent! You can check out more photos of our show at this site, and read a little more about the show here.
