Wishcast Wednesday

Jamie's question today is, "What do you wish to savour?"

I wish to savor anticipation ... anticipation of the green, saturated green, everywhere green, deeply lush green landscapes My Lovely Mother and I are soon to see in England. I wish to savor the anticipation of all that will be quenched in me, the places parched from my desert habitat -- parched in a way that is so natural and normal to me now, after 3 decades here, that I don't realize they're thirsty anymore, until I land in GREEN, somewhere, anywhere. I wish to savor the anticipation of seeing cherished friends, dear as family. I wish to savor the anticipation of discovering new sights, of RAIN, of ancient fences, homes, streets, wharves, whatever I'm introduced to, all of it. I wish to savor the anticipated promise of noshin' on REAL HONEST-TO-GOODNESS BRITISH FISH & CHIPS, and possibly tea with scones. I wish to savor the anticipation of the emotions, observations, words, poetry, which will fill my tiny travel journal.

Toni enjoy your trip. I stayed in Wolverhampton for about 2 weeks 1 year ago and loved it! Fish and Chips were awesome and the locals I stayed with said "It must be on newspaper for it to be real."

I hope you blog about it all! I, too, an in Arizona. I went to North Carolina a couple of weeks ago to get my fix of green. I have been to England a few years ago(but I went in march, so it was still damp and cold) and it was beautiful. and i ate fish & chips several times! love the vinegar with them!

Toni, that which you wish for, I wish for you also.

I think Tom Petty is totally off on 'the waiting is the hardest part' I think it's the best part in this case!
