Yes is the answer to the question. Yes, I’m going to Budapest in August. A river runs through it – the Danube! I could hop aboard a river vessel and be ferried off to Austria, Germany, Slovakia, Croatia, Moldova, Romania, or the Ukraine. That’s a lot of places. That’s a BIG river. I could meet a river king like my friend Maria José did when she was in Cambodia! Except that I’m going to keep my tuckus in Budapest and not go to any of those places. I’ll just stay in Hungary the entire 2 weeks… along the banks of the mighty Danube sipping coffee, reading, writing, dreaming. Returning to my apartment at night. Leaning over the edge of the balcony. Breathing in another world.
That’s what I’ll do.
But in this exact moment I’m in Los Angeles. On my back patio. Blogging on the laptop. Peach juice all over the front of my shirt.
The sun is beginning to set. I can hear mariachis drifting up the hill. Someone is having a party. I am officially developing summer brain. School is out in 9 days. I’m still completely absorbed in FULL TILT BOOGIE. Creating an online class is like getting a jumbo jet off the ground. Fraught with peril and excitement and combustible energy and big ideas and last minute changes and pure love. A wild ride any way you slice it.
