“It is in collectivities that we find reservoirs of hope and optimism.” ~Angela Davis
I’ve been thinking a lot about this quote lately, considering why we gather to share experiences and stories. And for me it’s exactly what Angela Davis says here: to find hope and optimism for a better tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
A gorgeous and sunny Thanksgiving morning. Phin and I bundled up and went to Central Park. Thankful today for my sweet pup, Phineas, this gorgeous park, my homey Upper West Side neighborhood, and all dogs everywhere. And of course for all of you. Happy Thanksgiving. 🐾🦃
I’m insanely excited that I’ll be traveling to Sarajevo the week of Thanksgiving to visit Amy, one of my very nearest and dearest friends who is doing a fellowship there. We’re planning to take a few side trips as well and possibilities include Istanbul, Budapest, and Prague.
I haven’t been out of the country since my trip to India in 2012. Work, creative projects, several moves, a creative sabbatical in California, and life in general made an international trip tough to swing. But now that I’m back on track, I’m re-indulging my sense of adventure and wanderlust by flying off to distant lands I’ve never seen before.
Through the wonders of social media, I’ll bring all of you along with me as I meet new people, see new places, and revel in the beauty of a city fighting and finding its way back to its roots through art, music, and cuisine. I’m prepared to fall in love with this city and all it has to offer.
Have you been to Sarajevo? If so, I’d love suggestions of activities and sites I must see.
