Passion Party #388 - Vacation Planning

One of the first things I do each December
is get one of those big wall calendars
and map out vacations for the year.
This is a challenge
because life is not always agreeable
in allowing the plans to take place.

But I do it anyway
in permanent marker
knowing that I can always cross it out
cancel reservations
and start again as needed.

This allows me to
enjoy the anticipation,
have something to look forward to
and almost always be pleasantly surprised when the date arrives
and I am on my way.

Vacations are fun
but it is the joy of anticipation
and the pleasure of the memories
that are often greater than the actual event.
I stay happy
by always having another vacation
on the horizon.
