I want to see the world.
There are not many of us who can travel as much as we want.
But I’ve found a way.
For when I didn’t go to Italy.
Me, feeding the birds in Venice.
Me, atop the Tower of Pisa,
I could see the very charming city below.
No matter how often we are warned,
Someone always has to stand in the boat.
The water was not very tasty.
I warned them not to take pictures of me in my bathing suit.
I had to stay there until they got bored with trying to humiliate me.
I always try to find a quiet,
Out of the way but meaningful place,
To write while I’m traveling.
And a special thanks to my niece for letting me not go with her to Italy.
I had a great time!
There were SO many pictures to share.
But you know how bored people get with other’s vacation pictures,
I figured they’d feel the same way about my not-vacation pictures.
