Why’d I get our passports? We could have just watched this…..

“Just talking” about anything is a lot less than actually doing it.

Watching a video and never taking it any further is even less than just talking about it.

We all have our passports now.

Let’s see if we do anything with them.

Here’s a video of a train ride through Norway.

I get the impression it’s a ride that’s in real time.

It’s a long video.

I didn’t take the whole ride.

Maybe it’s a video that’s supposed to be like a real train ride…..something you take and just look out the window every now and then.

Maybe you aren’t supposed to stare out the window the whole trip.

Jenny told me last night that I wasn’t all that adventurous before we had our kids and things got a little more difficult to just take off for places strange and wild.

That’s too true.

What a crummy thing to look back on….unexamined or missed opportunities….

It’s crummy to reminisce like that.

There’s not much that feels like I have any control over the outcome….and the past?!

Man….I sure don’t have any power over the outcome of things that have already happened.

I don’t have that mysterious power.

And I don’t think I’m all that braver, now, either.

Maybe I was just scared of what I thought might happen?

I think all this talk in the blog about chafing at the bit or needing a little adventure bugged her.

I think that it was a “s**t or get off the pot” situation….

Maybe she was just goading me a little….helping me feel the necessity of figuring out how to get to the beach more often….or the mountains….or Canada(!!)….or India…or Norway…or…

It’s like that saying about the great men having a great woman behind them….pushing them somewhere….

Maybe not….I can’t speak for what anyone else is plotting.

“Plotting”!!

That’s a funny word….

My Jeep is still in the shop.

What is that going to cost when all is said and done?

Holy Smokes….I hope it all works out.
